There has to be something I did wrong with reCAPTCHA, because spammers are still registering.

Advice?

They might not actually be bots, they could be real people.
I stole DDR X2 CS from the internet; it's my fault the music game genre is dying.

No, because I do a Google search on their email accounts and they are all spam accounts.

I did check the botscout page via Google search and the recent one is a spam account.

There has to be something wrong I did.

Try adding more fields to the Registration like Questions along with reCaptcha. And as I have said, if that fails, try a different forum software, or if you want to continue using phpBB3, a new host.

Or try going the hard route: enabling admin account verification.

DDRUK has had manual account activations for years.

Secondly, Recaptcha only checks one of the two words - the other word you type is scanned from a book and it doesn't matter what you put there.

Or a less intrusive way. Send them an activation e-mail that they must click.
