Looks like the version of the message board they use has an upgrade:
https://download.simplemachines.org/

Perhaps they can upgrade things to stop the spam. This thread over there has some posts on what can be done to slow the spam posts: https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=531660.msg3776163#msg3776163

The only way to stop them is to make it so that all new people that join have to be manually approved. Trying to avoid it, but maybe well just have to do it. Its just that a lot of people read some thing for the first time and want to respond right away and that wont happen.

Still would be a lot better than the current state of spam.

And you could have more than one approver. I am sure several people on the board would be more than happy to help.

Unfortunately, they do not allow moderators to do that for some dumb reason. They only allow the administrator to do it and if I make other people administrator, they have complete authority so I really cannot do that. I went ahead and set it up. I think so that People have to be approved by me to join. Well see what happens. This should not affect anyone whos already a member but let me know if it does.
