This board has been remarkably free of spam (well, relative to many others). How to deal with these particular attacks? They seem human (as opposed to scripted); do you have to know how this specific board works or is it a WordPress issue?
Everything is a bot unless proven otherwise. It’s too much work to set up a fake account and cut and paste badly written English. Without stronger recaptcha bots can break through bikepgh registration and message system. But I bet in several years the spammers will break recaptcha v3 and then Google will develop v4. And so on.
Bikepgh seems to use off the shelf WordPress and plugins and I’m sure spammers know how to spam these.
