my first advice on the random spam you have on there - is make all the sections accessible for posting by registered users only - letting guests through is just inviting trouble. Happily advise on other methods as I am a bit of a phpbb head, let me know

Thanks for the tip, FD - in fact, the <Help> section rarely gets any spam at all.

The other sections suffer more - though not a great deal. I believe that some kind of auto-registration takes place and then a spurious post made.

I have either banned the user or deleted the username.

It may be there is a later version of phbb or a plug-in, but I'm not party to that.
