It's been pretty smooth since setting up reCaptcha.  As much as people criticize it, reCaptcha is basically the savior of server admins.  None of the other options I tried had any effect.  Blocking bad IP ranges, honey pots, skill-testing questions.  Bots found ways around all of it.

reCaptcha was so effective that for a while I was worried that registrations were simply broken.  Had to create a test account just to make sure it still worked.

On my dead-ass SMF I added questions like "What is 'tree' spelled backwards?" to the register form.

Super fragile if anyone out there decides to program bots specifically for this specific dead-ass SMF, but no bot issues for years since.
