First, I'll be upgrading the phpBB to the latest version.
Second, I'll be setting up usergroups and permissions with appropriate access levels.
Requiring admin approval just to register is useless. Requesting group member permission to post on the forum seems to be the best solution.
I have no idea how quickly I'll get all of this done, but for those of you who have spotted the spam, I thought I'd let you know that we're taking steps to resolve it.
