The boards we run (not sewing/quilting related) put all new members' first 5 (or 10, depending on the board) posts through moderation first, and do not allow new members to send PMs except to moderators and admins or post photos or hyperlinks until they have "graduated" off moderation. We also use GeoIP and Torr node blocking. These are all very effective and require minimal moderator effort (particularly since the spam or spammer never actually makes it to the board).
