Yes, add a custom field to the Registration Form. Either a math formula or random question, eg. What's the capital of France? etc. Bots usually cannot pass that.

I have not been able to routinely visit, so I have not kept up the fight to keep this crap clear.

I had a few pms with Duff a year or so ago asking if there was anything to be done. The short answer was no.
