I changed the question, I forced mail validation and yet... spammers are still there!

How can I fight with human spammer ?! it just impossible.
If I had to valid myself new member, how could I say it's a spammer ?!

Does phpBB support the idea of some kind of probationary period in which there are restrictions on a user until they reach a certain number of posts?

Barring that (or perhaps in addition), would it help to make some more users moderators so spammers can be banned more quickly?

stopforumspam has an excellent mod for phpbb and I currently use a port on SMF that's just as good. Try that?
