I want to share with the forum my bad experience with phpBB.
I think that some spammers are targeting the phpBBs instances installed on Dreamhost. After a few days of installed, several spam messges were posted on my forum.
I initially thought that it would be just matter of banning their IPs. Bad idea .. they have plenty of them, from all over the world.
My second attempt was to configure re-Captcha on phpBB, as probably they broke the ugly captchas included on phpBB.. didn't work.. so proably they are using humans to manually post stuff.
So I gave up and remove phpBB....
Do you know some forum app alternative compatible with the stuff that we have on Dreamhost? A simple solution works OK for me.
