It looks like the spammers all started to return on Feb. 3. I just did a quick Google search on increased spammers on message boards and it looks like other people are having the same problems. The spammers found a way to get into the newer version of the message board software.

One short term solution that was suggested was to use custom profile questions:

Does anybody have an email address for the person running the site?
