Is there anything that can be done to reduce the amount of spam (advertising mostly illegal activities)?

I never remember it being such a problem until a few months back.

I know that moderators can't be online 24x7, but perhaps instigate a vetting process for new members for their first 'x' posts?

I love spam'n'eggs. I believe it is legal. But I should reduce it, anyway.

If you refer to the last offer of passport, id-cards, .. in best quality let the police know they might contact metatrader probaly with a higher success-rat than we might have.

Yeah, I referenced the legality side of things in the hope it might spur someone on at MetaQuotes...

I will not eat green eggs and Spam, I will not eat them, Sam I Am.  I reported one I saw of a post in italian I think it was, and saw the same post in English recently, I think.  Some guy offering fake legal documents.  But as far as spam in regards to posts on a forum, on some I think that is a very subjective  idea.  Some people might consider anything even slightly off-topic to be spam and get ridiculously anal about it.
