Is there anyway to disable random spam usernames? Here's an example.

All these users were banned for advertising. Any way to make it so people can't randomly just put asf8273fjsjwe
random spam usernames please shed some light on this don't really understand what you mean.

Are you referring to registration?
There really isn't a way you can block random usernames.
Umm... And how exactly would you distinguish a random username? How exactly is муѕтєяу less/more random than asf8273fjsjwe or hippopotamus32? Just use a normal plugin to block bots (I recommend Stop Forum Spam and Registration Question combination).
These plugins help with combating spam on your forum. Try installing some, especially the registration ones.
