Captchas do not work in phpbb, every one of them has been broken.
What _does_ work (from personal experience) is requiring user
registration to post, and during registration requiring the answer to
a simple question. There is a mod called "Textual Confirmation" which
does this perfectly. Something like
What color does mixing red and blue make? (purple)
or something silly like that. Stopped all spam 100% on my phpBB forum.
