Forum Registration Spam

Our forum seems to be receiving hundreds of spam registrations.
Are you aware of any other of your forums experiencing this problem.
Is there anything you can do to assist?

I have deleted several hundred bogus registrations from .ru and .ua domains.
I've also tried changing the antispam countermeasures but we are still receiving lots of fake registrations.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you have a strong CAPTCHA option set. If they are succeeding in registering in droves then something is almost certainly not set at a strong enough level.
spammers are a menace on all forums, but usual counter measures keep it under control.
Typically on the support forum perhaps 2 a day get past the controls. If that is the level you are getting then that is about the level you have to live with unfortunately.

We were getting dozens per day but I have managed to reduce this to around 5 or 6 a day.

also I may think about joining your forum, got a magnum research desert eagle and a gamo pt85 tactical, both c02 pellet, haven't done any target practice in a while
