    Indeed, admining a forum is a nightmare though. My rugby forum gets mountains of spam. We are currently deleting around 60 accounts a day, and about 30-40 posts of spam.

    There is a really easy way around this spam if you can believe it and it's worked extremely well at nukemods.com (so far). We've been inundated with cialis, phentaramine, etc., posts and links lately in the forums and I've been banning users left and right because of it, not to mention editing and archiving the posts.

    I finally got wise and added all the drugs to the "banned word list" and replaced them with the phrase **I'm an idiot**. So now, if you even mention online pharmacy, online-pharmacy, pharmacy, etc., or any of the above, your entire post looks like this:

    **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**, **I'm and Idiot**.

    Try using your word censors and adding the words that you see spammed most commonly, you'll be glad you did.
