Thanks Chris (and Jonni). As a phpBB3 forum-owner myself, I had to enable the captcha but also the Q&A section: a new user is asked a related question* and has to answer correctly to be allowed to register. The questions are easily answered with a quick google query, but it also helps my forum is in a non-English language It reduced the amount of spammers signing up to virtually none (from 20+ a day ).
