Hi DaveLandon,

User registration and account creation is a part of WordPress core. wpForo ony provides a registration form. You can install and configure any WordPress antispam plugin to protect spam user registration. This is not wpForo part, this is WordPress part.

wpForo will care about spam posting and help a little in user registration protection with builtin reCAPTCHA. These are wpForo antispam solutions:

New Topic / Post Moderation
1. Option to keep topics and posts unapproved until admin is not reviews and approved. If a spam is suspected, new topics and posts will be set unapproved automaticaly and you'll be notified about new unapproved entry via email. You'll be able to approve them in Dashboard > Forums > Moderation admin page.

Antispam Options (Dashboard > Forums > Tools)
2. Built-in Antispam system, spam content filtering algorithms
3. Hard control of New Registered users
4. Link and Attachment control
5. Built-in reCAPTCHA api for topics, posts, registration and login forms
6. Integration with Akismet, topic and post content scanning.
