spammers abuse this HOMEPAGE and ABOUT details by filling them up with their spam website and spam details.

spammers nowadays dont post in the forum but just registering and fillingup the above details
which in turn makes their website visible and linkable in your forum. Google can crawl it
and thereby penalizing your forum site.

I suggest to have a selection to DISABLE/REMOVE the above details in the signup form or members view

Do not allow Registered members the ability to edit profiles.

Use a user group promotion to promote verified members to a user group which does allow it.

Otherwise you can edit the templates to remove the fields, but I would recommend the above approach.
