We are getting a lot of spam here, too. The only way we can do is delete their account and ban their ip addresses.

To help restrict the spammers you can enable "Account activation by Admin" in the AdminCP.

Ok will look into changing out the captcha used on registration
And maybe write a script to delete all spam members across all forums.
