The past day or so, we’ve just been slammed with obviously bogus user registrations. More than 400. I had previously installed the Stop Spammers plugin, which had done a great job, but something’s changed. Then yesterday I added the Register Plus Redux plugin, which segregates the bogus, but hasn’t seemed to stem the flow, even though I have it set to verify email addresses. So I think I’ll just turn off user registrations off altogether for a while, and try to do some research as to what’s going on. In the meantime, you can always email us a comment that we’ll post, and I’m happy to create new user registrations (for real people) by hand. For obvious reasons, I’ve also disabled comments on this post.
Hope to turn things back on soon.
