How to avoid spam registration?

    Lately I’ve been getting a lot of spam members and blogs on my site and it’s quite annoying. It’s so bad anymore that I can’t distinguish my real members from my fake ones. Originally I didn’t have any form of CAPTCHA, but I ended up getting a lot of spam members. So then I added SI CAPTCHA and it worked for a little while, but now I am getting even more spam members than before.

    My question is how do I stop spam from my site, but yet keep my blog hosting open to anyone who wants to join? I can’t keep getting all these members.

    You must search for anti-spam plugins that filter out spam activity that the users make.

    If the “spammers” are going past the captcha, that means they are not robots, actually people, just spamming your site.

    So keep the captcha for robots, and you will need to search for anti-spam software to filter out the spam content posted on your site.

    Okay, what are some examples of software for that?
