    I keep getting these Spam new user registration emails from people like this:

    Username: paydayuscf

    E-mail: logininke12@cashette.com

    They mostly come from the domains cashette.com, gawab.de and mail.ru. Is their anyway to block these domains from registering?

    Thanks alot

    I personally have registration turned off and let Spam Karma keep an eye on comments:

    A fix that IMO is more effective than blacklisting can be found here, if you are prepared to modify a php file. In effect, it changes the default registration process and inserts a mini-Turing test to ensure that there is someone on the other end of the line.

    I found a plugin that puts a Captcha up on the registration form it's called CapCC and you can find it here http://fuctweb.com/2007/06/15/capcc/ seems to work well.

    Not one spam registration since I installed the plugin above a few days ago! I'm happy!

    The Sabre plugin is an appropriate answer to this issue.

    You can check it at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sabre
