 . . . Perhaps it's time for a Capcha in the registration process?

Capcha was active before but gave troubles to users and filled the forum's error log so I deactivated it. I'll look into how to moderate a user's first post before it appears, does anyone here happen to know of such an addon for SMF incidentally?

Oh wait, I guess that could be done with an additional user group which will be default for new members and has them post only in an introductory subboard or somesuch until reaching the number of one post. But that wouldn't prevent mass posting, afterward...

You could also just add a simple question in the registration process. Something only a human could recognize and answer.

Something like "2 plus 4 is..."

I would have done that right away (did exactly that on other sites already) if I were sure that wouldn't mess with the forum's automatic update capability, which I unfortunately am not.
