The FreeOrion forums have been getting a lot of spam profile registrations in the last few days, as well as a number of spam posts. It's getting to be too much to deal with manually, so we're looking into upgrading the forum software to the latest version. Hopefully that will help, perhaps by updating the CAPTCHA that has obviously been effectively broken by bot writers.

That probably won't happen for a week or more, so for now, I've turned on the option to "Check IP against DNS Blackhole List" which might cut down on the number of attempted registrations. It might also block some legitimate human registrations, unfortunately.
