What's everyone using for their anti spam for your 3.8 boards?

Hey guys, wondering what everyone is using for your anti-spam add-ons on your 3.8 forums? Im currently running 3.8.10, and getting bombarded lately. Thanks a lot.

use specific member profile questions, place in 4/5 incorrect options & the right answer specific to your forums niche
use googles: reCAPTCHA v2 for Human Verification

wrong answer instant deletes & ban of ip using a /24

If I was still running an instance of vB3.x I would use ReCaptcha v3 or NuCaptcha as well as the other suggestions above.

Thanks guys. I got captcha v2 running as it was turned off for some reason. Probably explains the sudden increase in spam.

Snakes1100, can you please elaborate more on the moderating members suggestion and adding the questions. I can't seem to find the option to do this in my cpanel.
