Getting a lot of spammers

Who seem to be joining up to start with spam links in their signature before posting 'thanks for this discussion' in every thread. I have tried the normal Captcha stuff and now the Q+As but they're getting past it. Can anyone explain a complex way to help prevent this?

I had this problem until I use reCapcha (not the normal capcha or other useless verification), excelent system to prevent spam regsitrations. Not a single spam registration since I installed it.

Wich vesion of vBulletin you have? Because reCapcha is now default in 3.7 i think. I use 3.6 and there is a mod to install it.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
