Japanese spam

I have been getting a lot of Japanese comment spam in the last couple of months - always from anonymous users, usually entirely in Japanese though with the odd random word in English; no links, just text. I have set up automatic screening for anonymous comments, so nobody apart from me sees them before they are deleted; but I am surprised that this has persisted, even after I switched on the option requiring anonymous commenters to identify the letters in a randomly generated image. This must mean that someone is physically going to the trouble of posting these comments which I cannot read and nobody else will read.
