Won't help upgrading the site, our sister site (RamZ) just got upgraded a couple of months ago and they are getting the same posts. It runs in spurts, happens for a while and then just disappears.

I have no clue what running/operating a forum involves both from the tech side and the financial so my questions come from a place of 0 (zero) knowledge. Are there not other forum software that are less susceptible to this or are they all just running basically the same with different appearances?

It's easy to stop once they get identified in the spam database but these guys are joining using different info most every time. It'll slow down but it may take some time.

Yep, unfortunately there are many methods to spam forums. While there is a lot of software out there to weed out the bulk of it, there is still a lot of manual labor involved in keeping it clean. As Jkelly said, it hits sites in spurts. We usually get it cleaned up pretty quickly though.
