There's really not much we can do as it is usually bots, which are automated.
We change differnt things to combat this from time to time, but it's never permanent.

Reviving thread, as I see these guys every week or so now..

Can you do a skill testing question? one of those "type the digits you see in the picture"

Or does that not help?

Skill testing question before 1st post?

The board is the latest version of phpBB, and has add-ins enabled to try to fight bots and spammers.
I'm not sure what else can be done at this point...
