We had problems recently with my overly paranoid anti-spam blocker, that was blacklisting everyone like Hal 9000 on steroids.
I had to switch it off.
When I did, the attack began. I have had zillions of fake registrations… very pesky.
I am trying a new solution as of now!
I hope this works. I have it set, I hope, to target registration and not comments.
It seems to be doing its job! Good registrations this morning and only one questionable one: too little info in that “about” field for me to make a good judgment.
Also it seems that the comment form isn’t overly paranoid anymore.
So far, so good.
