Sorry for all this, it appears to be human spam as they are circumventing the captcha no problem. They have been circumventing our other spam protection as well effectively.

Forum
I've spent the morning cleaning up all the remaining spam, and improving our spam methods on the forum which should now be even more effective. I can't go into what we do exactly I'm afraid for obvious reasons, but it should be robust going forwards and easy for us to adjust to new attacks.

Tutorials
Working on solving this issue now.

I beg the differ ... it would take an army of people to do ...

A bot net with a good AI I think.

You should check around the internet ... This thing has been going steady since last January/February ... spamming countless of forums. (talking way over the thousands fora here)

Odd really its not popping up in the news.
