Asia_Expat, sounds like you found the right solution for your situation, congratulations! There are so many variations on spam, it's not always a driveby. There are profile builders, the sleepers, some wait to drop links, some fake their posts by mimicking previous posts, some Google the title of the post and copy the answer from a web page listed in the top three. So many variations designed to get through the modwall. If you operate a forum then it's imperative to have moderators, policies, understanding of all the spam strategies, and proper software settings in place. Forums are not "set it and forget it" scenarios.
