I went into a friends sketchbook today and was met with explicit, hardcore porn spam. Not fun. It's especially bad when they get into others threads instead of making their own. I don't know how much can be done with it in terms of preventing this from happening, but I just thought I should say something in addition to reporting the post.
Jesus fucking christ! That spammer has some nerve. D8
That is... explicit.
'Cuz life is full of your regrets, and I should be one...
The best way to deal with this stuff is to report it (use the exclamation point at the top of the post). That way the mods will see it and deal with it.

I'm not sure if 3.6.5 VB deals with this, (though I'm sure you can add a hack) but which captcha are you using?
There is a hack that instead of default image verification, you can change it to asking questions, since spambots are stepping their game a bit. I know they upgraded the captcha in VB but not sure which one is being used on your version.
There's an enhanced version (your board owner needs to look at it, or whoever he/she has registered for ability to look at mods and hack on Vbulltein.org) http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...t=verification
(for 3.6.8 )
For your current version there is also this system:
It asks a question, of the programmer's choice to have people sign up. This version is already in VB 3.7 by the way.
I hope that helps you guys out.
