You've suggested it many times, and I've told you many times: The spam posts here are not even posted through PHPBB. They're posted by my own "QB News" bot which takes all posts in the Coranto "QB News" database and reposts them in the forum so that people can respond.
The way I have my site's CMS set up, it is completely dependent on anonymous posts and submissions. There is no easy way to force users to register without a LOT of hassle and a complete reorganization of the back-end. I just don't have time to do that right now.

The Latest Topics box highlights all the topics posted in the forums, not just news posts. It provides a fast way to get to the most recent forum posts from the front page. I like it the way it is...
