How to prevent spam registration on SMF forum? I use latest version of SMF, last 1 week it started to register spam users every day many.

ask a couple of questions when the user registers.  To register, the 'person' has to correctly answer your two questions.

a bot/spammer will be defeated.

I haven't had a spam registration in nearly 10 years.
