[Solved] Deleting a post hides the topic from the forum.
90% of spam CAN be blocked BEFORE registering/loging in. It is wrong to try to fight SPAM and profile SPAM, AFTER a user has registered. A waste of time.
I assume you are in the same situation, we are having trouble with the remaining 10%.
For example, if we have 30 spam registrations daily on our forum, even if we successfully block 27 of them, if we miss 3, those 3 will post a lot of spam.
I will try the plugin you mentioned tomorrow.
Thanks for your assistance, I appreciate it.
We are counting on your advice.
Still i ask, why your site ATTRACTS spammers? Think about it. Is it so popular?
We expect this is because we are the creators of a very popular free WordPress theme in Japan.
Simple WordPress Theme
Cocoon is a free theme optimized for SEO, speed, and mobile-friendliness.
It is simple to look at, but sensible to use even for first time users.
It was created with useful features woven in.
It is a 100% GPL theme, so you can use it freely.

Also Shield Security is a good one, i'm using it at some customer's sites.
Thanks @dimalifragis !
This is the first time we have not had spam two days in a row.
We find the bot blocking quite effective.
It was a big help that you introduced us to the Shield Security plugin.
Shield Security plugin is not well known in Japan, so we would never have discovered it on our own.
Thank you @dimalifragis !
