These spam posts are not by people so the sticky won't help. They are bots which sign up at forum and post ads. Usually requiring the to enter a code to sign up helps but since this phpbb already has that add-on (from memory) I don't see what else you can do but simply delete their accounts as they sign up. My friend has the same problem with his forums.

This thread seems to have some good suggestions.

Hope it's helpful. But it looks like everyone has trouble with these bots.

Spam seems so futile to me. Does anyone actually pay attention to the blatant advertisements?
