The "phpBB" banner is exciting, but what happened to the banner photo?

tl/dr ---> spam

The spam attacks have been getting really bad lately, to the point that Byron and I are having to wade through and deal with upwards of 150 spam posts on some days.
  • Gambling crap
  • Porn crap
  • Business opportunities crap
  • Fake id crap
  • Fake passports crap
  • Write-your-term-papers crap
  • Prescription drug crap
  • This crap
  • That crap
  • Crap on top of crap.
It got ridiculous over the past month so Spencer and I are trying a couple of things:
  • The first part was that Spencer updated the phpBB software and apparently that means we lost the banner (for now?).
  • The second part was to set up an e-mail account for sending spam-related IP source data back to the source's system admins so those commercial system admins can deal with spam emanating from their machines; we'll see how this second part of the approach works out!
