    There's no single step that really helps. Here are a few pointers:

    - Use a captcha when they sign on.
    - Keep a 30-second time limit between posts.
    - Ban IP's maybe?
    - They're doing it just to piss you off. Don't say anything in response, instead just delete the posts, and they will eventually lose interest.

    Lol? These are bots. They are for advertising (to make money). They aren't actual people. No matter how much you ignore them or act like its not bothering you they are going to continue to post.

    x ammount of posts to create a post?

    Lol yeah that sounds like a great idea. :rolleyes:
    YOU MUST HAVE ONE POST IN ORDER TO POST! Lulllz. :lol:

    But yeah, as some have said, implementing CAPTCHA into your registration should take care of most (if not all) the bots.

    You could also implement email verification.
