A relatively simple deterrent is a captcha.

Yet another but more interactive way would be to use Akismet 

I have used both of these types and are very simple to stop the vast 
majority of spam.

Once your system is a target, they will not be aware of any changes for 
a while if you implement simple measures.

They would have to revisit your site and reconfigure their spam bot.
