I believe that the vast majority of spam posts, are made by humans and not totally automated bots, so this works against human spammers too.
I am not saying it's perfect, but as long as they need email and IP to register here, http://www.stopforumspam.com/ forum plugin, might reduce the burden of moderating spammers.

Another solution, would be Akismet.
Or you can use a combo of them: Advanced Block MOD

The reason I am trying to suggest counter-measures against spam in your forum, is because
I am irritated by spam very much, but probably that's why I am here and using Trashmail in the first place.
I don't want to moderate spam posts, I bet neither you do.
