I've done a bit of research on the best installs to stop spam, and it seems people recommend Xen Util add on.. problem is, I can't even figure out how to install it. I'm sure it's simple, but I'm lost when I'm anywhere on the web outside of Wordpress.
Could someone plz provide me a link or something with easy install instructions, or even tell me where I could pay someone to do it for me?
Also, are there any other addons I should be installing in order to get the best spam bot defense?
Man, I've done WP sites for years and just recently decided to give a forum a go... This spam crap is highly irritating, and makes me not even want to mess with a forum. I don't even really understand why they bother... it just gets deleted, right? What's the point. I'm sure there is one, whatever.
