Guest Board posting without spam swamping


I have a guest board that I use, for people to post on if they are having trouble registering, or want to ask questions before they register. It seems to be getting swamped with spam. But I don't want to give my mods too much work, having to delete all that spam, or if I make it moderated, then they'll be moderating those spam posts too, right? What's the best way of handling this?

You're actually better of using Tenants human anti-spam system, as that stops all the sneaky types getting through too, which XF will not stop.

I use that and allow guest posting on all public forums without any issue of spam. They try, sure, but they're banned and rejected automatically without mods seeing anything.
