keep in mind that the allowance of this is based on the forum software and its components, not the person who runs the forum.
Additionally, if this is a hosted service in a server farm, the responsibility lies with the hosting company. Anything done to prevent robot spamming would require another layer of "human confirmation" (think captcha...). I thought there was something during the registration process. But if these are coming from some click farm in Buttfuqistan, they can easier circumvent stuff like that.
So then what?
You can run Geo-ID and deny known nation-state IP blocks. But what if one of the spammers is from Austria? Well then, looks like 2Fish if fucked too.
So that won't work.
I am sure there are programs out there that can be run on forum software to identify rapid postings done from a single IP (or subnet), but it probably costs money.
This is Almighty - standing by, over.
