Point of registering? (2 posts)

    It seems that I am getting a lot of people registering on my site with bogus information. All comments are moderated so I'm wondering what the point is of all these "spam" registrations it seem that most are coming from a @mail.ru address.. are these robots registering or actual people? Should I care or delete the registrations when they are obviously not real people. Why would you register on someone's site and not post comments?

    I have never been able to think like a spammer, so I can't answer your last question. If the accounts look fake, go ahead and delete them. It's your blog, so all the power to you (in the unlikely chance someone complains about you deleting *their* account, just plead spammer rage and suggest they use more valid-looking data next time).

    A couple interesting plugins pop up with this:
