Re: Is there any way to stop spammers?
Crap, the spammers have now found my site.
These are not the spammers with name+year usernames, like ‘johndoe1973’, that I used to get on test sites. Those seemed to bypass the registration and activation process, because they didn’t show up on my mailing list.
The spammers I get now have realistic sounding full names and apparently usernames generated from those fullnames (my regular custom registration). I recognize them from the long random strings they add in my custom Company field.
Haven’t seen them registering blogs yet. What are they even trying to achieve?!
Sploggers is a serious problem that WPMU/BPAutomattic needs to address!
