Default Huge amount of spam just in article section


I am getting a lot of spam on my forum and it is all going into the article section.

The forum is and most of the spam is porn.

I am getting at least one post a day.

Seems a bit odd that it only goes into the one forum, is there any problems with spam and GARS?

If there is, how can we stop it?

I have been working on reducing spam on my forums for some time, and I seem to have found a method of virtually eliminating spam from vBulletin forums... I wrote a tutorial on explaining how to do this.

[How To] Reduce spam on your forum

Its been working for me and I have cut spam down to nearly -ZERO- on my forums.
