Re: How to control spam registration?
With all of the web standards and accessibility built into WP and BP, it really makes me sad that a captcha plugin is the only known solution to this.
Captchas are probably my biggest pet peeve on a site. Even the ones that aren’t horribly mangled pictures or have sound alienate those with vision and/or hearing loss. The BP site I run gets its share of spam registration — and like Andy I just mark them as spam as quick as I can. But a captcha isn’t going to help me in any way since 80% of my member base (including myself) are blind or visually handicapped.
