I agree, that there should be a captcha if someone creates a new forums account, that would make it impossible for spam bots to register.

As for the Spam Filter, I guess about 90% of the spam will be directly detected as spam and no new mail notification will be send for these postings.

When I remember back, before they upgraded the forums, it was even more worst, there was no single filter nothing, really painful for the mods, but yeah, there is always room for improvements.
