Yeah, looks like new phpbb's captcha was again cracked and bots are coming through...

Admins should probably switch to a better captcha (I hear repatcha is very good, plus it contributes to some scientific project), or implement some non-common tricks in registration form - for example, on some forums I've seen a trick like this: user is asked to enter captcha, but swap, say, the first and last letter, and omit the middle one in it.
