ReCaptcha only helps filtering out bots. Human spammers can still input the captchas. I hardly believe there is a workaround for that rather than filtering each post out

I have seen this issue. it is very difficult when too many spam registrations are verified and then they post spam posts.

right now, only one solution I can think of is route your traffic thru cloudflare.com DNS. they will filter out traffic from SPAM ip.

I guess the best practice for this is to check if entered email address is exists or not (in addition to recaptcha).

You may get used of this php class here.
