XF 1.2 Server Error Caused By Spambot Trying To Register

Every so often I get an error like the one below. I'm assuming it's a spammer or spambot trying to register with a stupid long username (or it's trying to spam the server itself). Is the error correct behavior in a case like this or do I have an issue somewhere that should be addressed?

Code:
