You've got to love it when an otherwise wayward YaBBer mends the error of their ways. Uh, errors.  Wink
  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

I also appreciate the anti-spam advice, since bots got past all kinds of security measures I tried using 2.5AE without mods.

No forum software is invulnerable to spammers without both anti-spam add-ons and diligence. YaBB does have some excellent anti-spam mods.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

From what I have learned over the years, I wouldn't use anything without anti-spam protection anymore.

Yes it does. For anyone starting out with a forum, don't go without one. If you already have a forum without anti-spam protection, do yourself a favor and add one.
