You know, this actually might have worked if the bot had just started a new post.

I can't remember--what kind of CAPTCHA do you guys use? You should probably switch to reCAPTCHA.

I forget what type of CAPTCHA this uses. There's some added on bit where people creating accounts also have to answer the question "What is the capital of France?" I guess the bots have learned that one.

Is it Paris? Or does France do the thing so many US states do by faking you out and having the capital be the third most well-known city (Versailles, maybe?)

The registration questions work differently now, so I can reveal the secret answer to that old one. Both "Paris" and "F" were acceptable.

You could probably make it less bot-able by specifying a date.
