    How many bots per day are you getting?

    The anti spam I installed is very effective against programmed bots.
    I believe the bots that were able to register recently were real human. They manually register to the forum to post spams..
    Its better to temporarily moderate user registration manually and continue the ip ban. Theres no 100% effective way to fight them, but manual user registration approval is best in this situation, since there are active mods who can monitor regularly.
