2.Title contains vaguely porn-related terms related to age, viewing etc.

Jesus, so much spam on the forum.
Actually my own forum has the same problem this week - it got so bad in fact that my Hostgator account got suspended - oops. I can't be bothered with it so I took the forum down permanently . If I was a PHP expert I would have waded in and come up with a solution but .NET is more my thing.

Anyway Winston if you're listening check out stopforumspam or one of the related services as the few IP addresses I investigated on my forum were "known" to the anti-spam clearing houses.
