Do they hack existing users accounts and post, or do they post on their own?
I thought I remembered having to fill in the "word box" security thing, and also have my first 5 posts approved by a moderator.

They post on their own and all of their posts have to approved so most of you do not see it. When we log in all we see are little green question marks for all of the spam that needs to be approved or deleted...

So if they are getting past the authentication registration, wouldn't one think to try something different to stop this?

That is ridiculous! I'm a new user here and I am good at web stuffs. The first thing I noticed was the registration question is too easy for a SPAM bot. If you can Google the question and find an answer so can the SPAM bot. Change it to a CAPTCHA, one of those annoying pictures that spell a word that I can never read the first time. That would be a start. This would be for Admin level Moderators. If the need help just PM me.
