    I've enabled StopForumSpam to see if it helps stop the spam bots from registering here.
  • G @ Gaz:
    Do you get a lot of spam registrations.

    I was starting to get 2 each day.
  • Paul @ Paul:
    reCaptcha wasn’t helping.
  • G @ Gaz:
    I don't like using Google reCaptcha now. It seems to have got a lot worse trying to pass the validation images you get shown. And if you keep clicking refresh image for an easier one, it quickly blocks you for a few hours thinking you're a spammer refreshing the images for another one.
  • G @ Gaz:
    Has anyone actually passed those traffic light images the first time with Google ReCaptcha. Because they usually get shown the most and you always fail about 10 times in a row trying to get it right.
  • Paul @ Paul:
    I think the spam bots are getting past the reCaptcha images somehow. SFS blocked one spam registration already.

    Nope, doesn't happen to people with an IQ above 8 usually.
