Zacharymib & Travislam are spamming the forum. Looks like a hack cause they've posted game related content before

I think the problem isn't the spammer itself but that his password is too easy and hacked

If you have access to the ACP, go into it-> forums-> userposts -> permissions...you should be able to set up post captcha's from there, but you'll have to adjust the settings for each section separately...hope this helps...

Edit: i just noticed that i'm a little late with this post--by a few months...sorry about that... *facepalm* ...lol
It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people wonder if you're a fool than to open it and remove all doubt...
