I've noticed that an overwhelming number of fake accounts that make it through the spam controls are from only a couple domains. It'd be cool if, in a future update, we could set a list of domains (I'm sure we all know what they are) that were auto blocked and not allowed to make a profile.

Registrations and Logins are 100% handled by Wordpress core. Not wpForo.

Find a WP plugin for that or a general security WP plugin.

Seems to me that if wpForo can override my core registration preferences, my core registration page, my core login page, and my core reCAPTCHA settings, it's not such a crazy ask that a domain blacklist be added to the wpForo spam controls instead of adding another plugin to my site to only handle security on wpForo.
