There are a couple options;

1) IP address ban. I'm sure the spambot are probably from the same place, so ban the IP and voilà (May affect some genuine (potential) member);

2) Captcha for registration;

3) Security question in registration: To prouve you are human, what is the game for which this forum is dedicated ______`;

4) post moderation. Until the person has 3 "genuine posts". His post must be apporved by a Moderator/Administrator. Spammer can be culled there.
