Are they all just willing to throw in endless hours of overtime to deal with the SPAM or is there maybe a more efficient solution without causing such intense side effects?

I don't know how others are handling their forums. Perhaps they are burning the midnight oil all the time. That's not something that I prefer to do. We have a team of moderators that covers most of the 24 hour spectrum and operates from various continents of the globe. We also have a set of forum tools to our disposal to combat spamming. Unfortunately not everything can be automated in that regard so man power is still necessary, but it's manageable. The choices we made are working for us at the moment.

PMs are another aspect. Whenever someone registers to our forum, and asks for PM access right away, then that is a trigger to us. We've had the wrong type of usage of PMs in that regard in the past. A forum should be for what it is: a place where people talk publicly. So PM usage is restricted in the same way as the Edit function for new users.
