I believe he did and thay just keep coming from different IPs.
Can't you simply block the spammer's IP address?

I heard domains hosted by dnspark can get lots of spammers. So, I removed my domain from dnspark, changed to be hosted by the same host as my website. But this didn't improve the situation.
Seems I will have to give up this domain?

Akismet has no control over subscribers, contributors login and the IP detection. Yes you can enabled CAPTCHA but for that you have to additionally install the plugin and then solve the problem of BOT registration. Hope that helps.

turns out that the quiz questions can be grabbed, analyze later and an answer table can be written for the bot to use as reference. in 9 days i was able to create a bot that not only works on breaking my anti spam software but was also successful to beat 90% of human question and answer patterns. the only code that beaten this approached are ajax triggered human/bot check.

Looks like your site has been added to a SPAM list so from now on you will have periods of Whac-A-Mole the spammer. Hang in there because after a few months of not getting an SPAM through, they usually disappear. Unfortunately this is only temporary because a different spammer will try the same thing at a later date and you will have to do the same thing to them.
P.S. Check all of your permission settings and administrative PHP scripts just to make sure they don’t have a backdoor in them. There are several websites that can scan your site for security holes but just be careful who you trust.

Thanks for the capcha suggestion, I added a "Hummanity" secrurity question and answer on register page. Now the robots stopped coming.
But I'm thinking-- there are lots of robots keep trying to register everyday. It should comsume a lot of bandwidth or CPU resources on hosting side. That might make my blog slow down. Hope this is not true?

Don't you have administrating rights on your blog? You should be able to ban the spammer's IP address?

I have Akismet and Badbehavior plugin working on my Wordpress blog, those spammers didn't get caught.
What else I should do to block spammer registering?
