I had a reply to my email regarding the stammers. They said they are busy working with their IT people to come up with a solution, thought I would just let everyone know

Its really not complicated. Put the first post of every new member through pre mod. Delete the spam posts and spam registrations before they even become visible to other forum users.
Its a very quiet forum, and there aren't that many new posters. Genuine registrations won't mind if their first contribution takes a while to appear.
Manual approval of new registrations would catch a lot of spammers before they could even post. Many are easy to identify by name/email addy/ip details.
Compared to a busy forum, looking after this one should be a cinch.
