Ok guys, I think I fixed the problem for now. Looking at the detailed access logs, the site was indeed under attack from a shitload of leeches bot and crawlers mainly from China. I cannot understand why the same bots were recrawaling the whole site every 10 minutes or so. Anyhow, I banned them all using .htaccess files and fake member went to zero (this also affected the wiki and news btw). I could restore guest access and reopened registration. It's not perfect but now there's much easier targets out there for them.
