The signup procedure does use reCaptcha, but the spambots are wise to it these days...
probably because we're using an old version of vBulletin.
Ideally, we need to upgrade to the latest version, heh.

As DrO & Koopa said, the built-in spam filter does detect a large percentage of spam and automatically hides it.
Though as you've noticed, some does get through, and we ban & delete those as quickly as humanly possible.

I agree that we need to improve the system and of course it would be nice for it to be fully automated.
As always, we shall see....

Chill :-)
