The only way I know around this is to require an "application" sort of form, where the applicant answers a few questions and why they want to be a part of the forum. Then you allow 4 or 5 trusted people to be administrators that can approve or disapprove the application. It's a PITA (Pain in the A), but it works - and will allow legitimate interested parties to join.

It's what I've had to do in Yahoo Groups that I mediate, and it's what my gaming friends have done on their "guild" sites. No one person has the time for this kind of overhead, but if you can deligate to a few trusted members, it can be done.
