Spam sucks, but I really don't know how moving to a new forum software would solve anything (hint: it wouldn't).
Actually, it would. Look at the discourse FAQ and features. They're actually acutely aware of the spam issues,
whereas the phpbb response is very much "Well spam isn't a security issue thus isn't our issue". Unfortunately,
even though we have reCAPTCHA, the old phpbb safe guards have been totally crippled. The profile questions
are now pointless as the validation system will give you the answer anyway. The upstream support forums
are filled with affiliate links from their own moderators, so their views on how a forum should run, and ours,
are significantly different.
