Can only confirm what others are saying here: we're also getting lots of bot registrations despite the use of recaptcha.

I made a few changes to the program code to deal with bots that automatically register an account, maybe you can use it on your website, here's GitHub I mean: https://github.com/ryanbekabe/Stop-Bot-Auto-Register-Question2Answer

I think the best solution is cloudflare. I had a lot of problems before adding cloudflare and it has stopped most of the issues. You can adjust settings to more or less strict as needed.

I'm using AntiBot Captcha plugin with the latest q2a version.

it is working very well and has almost stopped spam registrations using bots. (I had 1000 to 2000 bots registrations each day!)

Just install it go to plugin settings increase the "Symbol count" to more than 6 and add some letters to "Character Set". (Characters are case sensitive)
