User Registrations although registrations are disabled ? (7 posts)

    I have disabled registrations in the WordPress admin interface and deleted the wp-register.php file as well. Even though I did that I still receive 1-2 registrations per day which are obviously spam registrations by bots. (using a .ru mail address)

    I would like to know how someone can still register an user even though I have disabled that option in WordPress. More pressing than the how is a way to stop registration once and forever.

    Update
    we think this may be something to do with the shared registration between bbpress and wordpress

    Oh sorry I didn't see that someone posted to this already
    From what I gathered from bad behaviors website it stops bots from commenting, which in our case they aren't, just getting through captcha and registering
    I deleted 25 this morning and after activating reCaptcha there were four more this afternoon.
