    I would imagine signing up might be done manually, but a bot then goes
    to hundreds (thousands?) of bugs and posts comments.

Quite possible.

    What about a dedicated captcha for when the post contains a hyperlink
    or is in "rich text"? 

Sounds like a good idea to me.  Ineiev and you and others flagged a
dozen more spams the last couple days, and I'm sure there are plenty
more out there.  So we are basically back to where we were before, with
comment-spam happening at will.  Clearly the registration captcha has
been defeated.  (Asking for "1983" lasted longer!)
