Today we've gotten at least four different spam accounts, all related. Why is this? Are they getting past the captcha or what?

As someone who works with phpBB a lot I have seen a ton of spam lately. Something is up or off with the system. Either there is a new way to bypass the registration or spammer are using grinders a lot more lately. I unfortunately believe it to be the first.

PS - you might want to suggest changing from the phpBB captcha system to recaptcha. There has been a rumor for sometime that is bypassable.
