Stopping Spam.


I'm using Google's reCAPTCHA on my forum though the odd bot keeps getting through. I'm fairly bored deleting accounts and adding temporary email addresses to the banned list.

Is there anything that completely stops spam?
I wish I could just rely on this.

I have an API key for every service apart from akismet but I've just signed up for an API key.

A bot keeps making account and uses the same if not very similar website in their profile, email addresses are always temporary addresses.

Thank you, if Akismet doesn't help I'll give the addon ago.

It would certainly stop the spam.

Of course the only guaranteed method of stopping all spam is to not run a forum...
