Am running a forum, using registration questions (a dozen questions, of which 3 randomly showing in the reg form), this has kept 100% of bots away, stopped 100.000's of reg attempts trough the years. A few (maybe 3 pr year) 'human bots' do register, but these are quickly spotted by mods and shot dead before doing any harm.

xenforo got it ("Creating Custom Questions and Answers" "Active questions will be presented in a random order") CAPTCHA | XenForo Should kill botnet regs for good, if properly implemented.
I think many of these are human, but will try the random question route. Thanks.
