Since MyBB community is full of spambots (proof: once you create a thread you see the number of views growing hilariously)

Proof 2: scroll down the page and see how many guests are browsing this thread RIGHT NOW! don't tell me that 50+ real unregistered people are all on this thread :o

You've posted a link to your website somewhere on this forum and that's why you're getting that huge number of spambot visits...

Seems to be believeable. Server seems to be down for me now.

Are there any results for some of the IPs at www.stopforumspam.com or www.projecthoneypot.com ?

Go to http://www.wizcrafts.net/chinese-blocklist.html and start enlarging your .htaccess file. (And sign up for update notifications.) It's all free, and it cleaned up one of my servers in a few minutes.
