[Anti-Spam] How do you stop application spam?

Recently, I've been getting about a dozen spam applicants to the forum. All of them use the following text during the application process.

"{I want to {see new threads|follow the discussion|be part here|see new additions|access all parts|contibute|say something|reply to a thread|reply to a user|message a user|contact a user|read everything}."

Right now I have the application process set on manual approval because the Captcha system was letting these applicants through. Any idea on how I can stop these spam applicants without manually approving them?
