They are from all over the world. The ones in eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, Mexico, Brazil etc I'm not going to report. But there are a few from Norway (my country) and Sweden as well. I'll report those.

I've done reverse DNS on the IP's and mostly they are non reversable, but some are. Should I report to the various ISP's abuse accounts, or is that just a waste of time?

Good idea. What's best though a 500 or a 404? Internal server errors might make them want to investigate further to maybe exploit a potential weakness or something.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll block the IPs in question and switch to reCAPTCHA, atleast for the time being.

The messages are posted from some 260 different IP addresses and new ones are used every day. CAPTCHA is already on, but clearly it is not working or the implementation is buggy allowing the scripts to bypass it somehow. The site in question has users with different disabilities and using a "proper" captcha will make some users struggle.
