This is a particularly nasty group of spammers. They have managed to shutdown or completely pollute other message boards even those that require you to type in letters in a picture before the registration is complete. Although the use of this technology will stop those spammers that are using automated spam posting methods a couple of which appear to be posting here.

It will likely take some aggressive moderating so that messages are deleted as soon as they appear in order to discourage spammers. Also they may have to get the web hosting company or the message board administrator involved to block offending IP addresses so they can no longer reach the message board at all.

One thing that could be done now is to disable the use of HTML code that allows pictures to be posted in the body of messages. This step alone appears to have discouraged them from posting porn on some other message boards.
