I have been using PHPBB for a forum on my web site.

I'm setting up a new web site and am looking around at all the
different bulletin board programs available. naturally, some are free
and some come with a hefty price tag.

I just wanted to get an opinion from you all here what is the best
bulletin board software available in your opinion.

also, I'm having a terrible problem with spammers.
they come in and sign up and post a lot of porn, Viagra, casino BS.

is any way to filter that out??
