Topic: I just can not handle this,,

Hello Everyone.
I have been using the PunBB for 3 years now. Presently version 1.3.2
Somehow last 2 years I am loaded continuously by spammers with many accounts and spam posting.
I started to use the Admin activate account, I have already over 5000 accounts waiting for activation.
I have every week about 200 posting from all over the world in thousands of chars and hundreds of http links, at the beginning I had fun deleting it all but now I am tired..
Tell me please,,, is there anyway to restrict the amount of chars to post? is there anyways to this invasion,, I just laugh calling this invasion, what else it is ?,, this automated pounding my website with thousands of accounts every month..
Thank you for response,,
Eugen.
