    There is no easy way to block human spammers. You have to deal with those people manually by deleting their posts / accounts when they start to spam. You can also implement moderation but that can be time-intensive.

      From the 190 registrations in the last 2 days,
      it caught 184 spammers before they could register,
      and allowed 6 real users.

      Saving me and my mods from having to process 184x*posts* in 48 hours that we usually deal with because reCAPTCHA and other HV features don't help.
