    Do two things.

    First, turn off the feature that allows guests to post without registering. That is a huge hole in your security that makes regular banning useless.

    Second, close new registrations. If they can't register, they can't post. Keep it closed until you think they've lost interest, then open up again. Or at the very least, close it when you can't be there and open it when you can.

    The second one is up to you, but I strongly recommend the first one. It's common sense.

    You could also make it so all new accounts have to be validated by an admin before they can be used. At least, I think you can do that on invision... I'd check and provide instructions, but I don't remember the password to the invisionfree board I made for that purpose.
