I don't require registration, though about 35% of participants have registerd. Are there compelling/legal reasons why I should require it?
If your forum uses non-standard URLs and doesn't have stuff like "powered by ___" in footers, titles, etc., you'll be able to stay off the spam radar longer. That's one advantage of using an obscure forum package.
Exactly, good point. I now use vBulletin, pay to remove copyrights, and rewrite the url's. We used to get quite a few searches done specifically for key phrases in Phpbb before I switched.
