I am thinking about setting up a new forum. I have done it a few times before with free boards. But the dang bot registrations always overwhelms me and I lose interest in dealing with it. I have seen talk of integrating a "stop forum spam" feature in the next version/upgrade. But I also realize the issues with the lawsuit. I see where there is a bit of a slowdown and know the stress of fighting must be taking its toll. So my question is what tools will I have to deals with these dang bots. My forum will be devoted to a local area (regional location). Pokin around with the demo doesn't show me much. How have others dealt with this? I like the idea of supporting xenForo and I am confident that if they can weather this storm, this will really take off.
