Spam bots

#1
Only installed Xenforo tonight, but already (with recaptcha enabled) we've had about 6 people sign up and start their usual spam.

Moved from vb4 over to XF and never had this much spam in such a short space of time.

Any ideas on putting an end to this?

Many thanks.

I've found they are not new members, but instead old members who signed up on vbulletin and hadn't posted. Transferred everything over and now they are suddenly posting.

Use the spam feature in Xenforo to ban and identify sister ID's with the same IP. You likely find the spam posts ID's are related.
