I wonder why the spammers love this particular forum so much. They're prolly sharing (or selling) the URL amongst themselves...would it help dissuade them at all if we closed public registration for a few weeks?
Few weeks probably wouldn't do it sadly they don't care if it works or not they'll just try... then if we ever open it back up poof they'll still be trying.

Can always close the forums to registered users and make everything private, have people ask for post access to the forums, that's about it really.

But with the current Captcha version we have setup, any spam is almost certainly human handled and not automated spam.
