    @imjscn what BP/WP versions are you using? What are the labels/fields for the 2 profile fields which are exhibiting meaningless letters?

    @mercime, I am with WP 3.01 BP1.252
    there are 2 fields, Primary Language(text box) shows something like “O4hDNZAiV” or “7rj462jpc”, and About me(text Area) shows something like “s2MtUZWWDRJYlj” or “jJxbfMDAPTIJK4r”
    This only happens on newly registered members. For old members, even input new information in profile the first time, it still works normal.

    That is strange indeed. What did you add/delete/upgrade in your install before strange behavior was manifested? Could it be new user is typing in foreign characters or playing around OR is your install for a private community?

    It’s just spammers isn’t it! When bots sign up, they have to or think they have to fill any form fields they find so they simply place random characters. Are these actual users or spammers?

    I see, spammers. I checked their IP address– they are the same.
    Thanks!

    several days passed, these 2 spamers didn’t do anything on my blog. Why they register? What they want to do?
