    Most of the spammers we get are humans, most likely, and they appear to be from Pakistan. IPs typically resolve with this information:

    ISP: Pakistan Telecommuication company limited

    Organization: PTCL

    Continent: Asia

    State/Region: Punjab

    City: Faisalabad

    Latitude: 31.4215 (31° 25′ 17.40″ N)
    Longitude: 73.0843 (73° 5′ 3.48″ E)
    Postal Code: 38000

    Given that information, would there be a way to set up Xenforo to automatically reject registrations from people with such a profile?

    You can use the spam phrases for posted content, Stop Forum Spam options or IP address banning.

    I didn't realize there were Stop Forum Spam settings.

    So I have now checked "block this registration" under "Check DNSBL on registration." We'll see whether this helps.
