Why don't you put rules in place so that the members aren't allowed to continually bump threads, and when they do they get warned or banned for a small period?

It sounds like you have a few spambots on your site. I would recommend reading this topic.

If users are registering and creating thousands of topics in a day they are probably not humans, but spambots. You can ban them but they will only come back. The topic I posted above should help prevent these.

As I mentioned above, if he breaks the rules ban him. It doesn't have to be permanent either, just enough so that they don't do it again.

You could do this

Admin panel
general
post settings

Increase the flood limit.

Flood interval:
Number of seconds a user must wait between posting new messages. To enable users to ignore this alter their permissions.
