Are the forums being spammed with useless replies to subjects and links to websites I just don't trust (and why I don't click on them)?
Anyway, very annoying..

The problem is it appears phpBB3's captcha has been "broken" or at least an algo has been figured out to computationally read them.

I noticed it.. Does it makes any sense reporting them? I push the "!" to report a post, but if no one looks onto it, it doesn't make any sense me doing it.

Definitely make use of the report system, it will help keep track of this stuff quicker.
