    May I suggest closing new sign ups for the forum, and only leave Facebook login as an option (everybody's got FB these days) in the meantime.

    It seems LOWYAT.NET, the largest forum in MY (I think) also closed sign ups for now, I suspect they are also under bot attack.

    Alternately, you can delay new signups by manually approving each after vetting.

    good idea @ixeo, will explore the FB reg option as the sole method
