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.
