There are a few ways you can curtail this activity. What forum software do you use for starters? Regardless of software:

1. Turn on "Email activation required"
2. Disallow posting of URLs until x number of posts is reached.
3. Moderate first x number of posts (only staff see the posts until they are approved)
4. Some softwares have image verification needed. Use this (although it won't stop too many nowadays as the bots are too clever) if available.
