Tired of spammers....

This is so bad for me i have daily 100+ spammers registrations and a lot of spam posts,
i installed Spam-o-matic before but there was 2 major issues with this product, 60% of normal users were unable to register and even with this product spammers were coming and posting i dun know how...

so is there any other solution so that i can get free my forum from spammers....?
thanks in advance

This will stop most of the spam bots that auto-register:

This gets alot of human spammers because they still use early IE:

This stops registration by any device on blacklisted host names: (You compile the list. I have a good one I will give you via PM. This is effective against both human spammers and auto bot spammers)

NONE of the above use captchas, puzzles, questions or other such nonsense that merely annoys legitimate users, and have been rendered obsolete anyway for the most part, by autospam programs such as XRumer.

Some times they do get through, there is not much to be done to stop a human spammer.
