On other forums I have been admin on we simply would require the first post of a user to be approved by mods before they could make more posts or even have their first post view-able at all.

This of course assumes that we have access to someone who has "super user" level access to adjust forum features.

this would stop the spam bots in their tracks and prevent the news feed from getting flooded by garbage.

I could defeat that, but it's worth a try. Maybe our pest wouldn't know how.

against a human who has the desire to bypass and spam, yes it wouldn't work. But what is going on here is mindless spambots just shit posting their garbage. It would stop this in its tracks.

Unfortunately only the developers of the site got the necessary access level to implement such feature. And even then, I’m not fully sure if it would stop the spam bot attack. We had the exact same thing happening around 2 years ago. Back then, the devs changed the registration process to make it somewhat bot proof. This worked for a couple of days, until the regarding user (users?) started to register the spam bots manually. The attack was stopped after adding a vast cluster of IP ranges to the ban list. This unfortunately can also just be carried out by the developers.
