    Make some good questions and answers for the registration.
    The bots cannot join,so they cannot spam.
    Neat trick that I did... I ask a simple question that's got 2 answers.

    Q: What is the owner Real Name or Nickname? (Hint)

    So what happens is most bots can't answer the question and the human spammers don't want to to bother clicking the hint most times. So in 3 years of vBulletin I've only had 7 spammers. Pretty good I'd say.

    I have changed the write permissions, still no success is there any thing I should be aware of ?

    Or how do I add them manually ?

    This is out of the scope of vBulletin, but you can use this to generate an .htaccess file that will disallow the IPs you specify from the server.
