    Here i am sharing some spam Protection tips that i have personally used! For peoples who got hundreds of spam threads/posts from bots type users.
    1st We start with vBulletin Default Options

    1: Make a New Group Based on "Registered Members" Group and name it whatever you like, eg: Verified Users, Active Members. and Turn ON Thrrad Posting For this usergroup.

    2: Turn of thread posting for "Registered Member" unless they reply in 5 or some Threads.

    3: Make a new "Promotion" in Usergroups>Promotions.
    User Group = Registered Member
    Set Reputation = Level to 100 or something you like,
    Days Registered = 1 or greater.
    Posts = 5
    Promotion Type = Primary UserGroup.
    Reputation Comparison Type = Greater of Equal
    Move User to Usergroup= Verified Users or The UserGroup You Created in Step1

    4: Now here we need a 3rd Party Plugin. Install Spam-O-Matic Plugin By Glowhost n your forum and activate it. You can get this plugin from vb.org

    Hope this will control spamming on your forum
