Not that I relish their company, but what stopped the spambots from flooding this place? I recall it used to be filled to the brim on a daily basis, requiring tedious clean-up work. Was it a board update? Some other forums I observe use phpBB and suffer from bot issues, so any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Well, being an admin of some forums myself in the past, I can tell you exactly what' stopped the spam:

Our admin is actually active on a regular basis to kill them. :P

Well, actually, it is two things that stopped the massive amount of spam other than my dedication to it.

1) Xen updated the phpBB to the most current version, which has better spam protection.
2) It actually is a lot harder to register on the forums because the only direct link is found in the threads.
