Anonymous spam comments bypassing registration

    Our client is getting spam comments from a user named “Anonymous.” There is no user by that name registered. In fact, we have it set up so users MUST be registered to use the forums.

    Any idea what could be going on? We haven’t had this problem for the 8 months of the forum being online, then we get 1 spam comment every couple days. Forum is hosted @ http://gpoguy.com/forums/

    Thanks!
