XF 1.1 Should I Remove "General Talk" Forum?

    If spammers attack only my General Talk forum, does this means I shouldn't actually maintain this forum? I often see spammers attack Off Topic or General Talk or something like that.

    Thank you.

    I don't think the problem is your General Talk, it's the spammers, what sort of anti-spam methods do you have in place.

    I use Q&A Captcha which my questions aren't those simple ones and I have a total of 5 questions (4 older, 1 just added). These spammers were able to verify themselves and become registered users.

    May I know if you can suggest which addon can play quite an important role for spammer issue?

    Thank you :)

    I suggest using this instead of Q&A. Put this in, and you should be fine.

    And then get rid of the current spammer accounts. None should register after that. (Hopefully)

    Thank you Harry Fox for pointing out the KeyCaptcha and the tips by Jake. I will install it right away :)
