I am getting registrations from Chinese users who are just signing up to try and get links by putting info in the "About me" section of their profile along with putting their URL in their signature. They obviously have no intention of ever posting to the forum.

Is there any way to remove the "About me" section to thwart them?

Hi @bob,

You should use the CSS code like this:

.wpf-field.wpf-field-type-textarea.wpf-field-name-about {
display: none;
}

The CSS codes should be added in the "Custom CSS code" textarea, located in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Style Tab.  

Please don't forget to delete all caches and press Ctrl+F5 (twice) on the frontend before checking to reload the updated CSS file. 

Here is explained how to find the classes of the elements, in case if you like to hide other fields: https://wpforo.com/community/general-discussions/colour-change-of-register-and-login-button/#post-26838
