Awesome Plugin
By , for WP 3.9

I have tried every plugin around trying to stop spam registration. This plugin has brought it to a virtual stop. I just added the stopforumspam.com API code option as well. So far, no spam. Love the details that are provided in the settings. Keep up the good work.

Sorry to see you go
By , for WP 3.8.2

This plug-in has made the difference between an unusable spam-riddled site and one that is useful to its' users. I am very sorry to see you throw in the towel and hope that you might reconsider or see if you can find someone to take over the plug-in. Stopping spam is complicated, so users of the plug-in should not be surprised that tweaking the settings is sometimes required. In any case thanks for creating it and good luck as you move on.

Solved most of my problems
By , for WP 3.8.1

I was getting upwards of 20 user registrations per day all bad. Now I get about 2-3 weekly. This plugin plus akismet and a honeypot API key get all the credit!

Does nothing
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin does nothing. I've been getting user registration spam like crazy on my forums. I added this plugin because I liked the description: "aggressive, non-apologetic", etc. Well, it does nothing. I still get dozens of registrations a day. Sorry, but this plugin isnt helping.

I've been very grateful for this plugin and I'm sorry you need to throw in the towel. Thanks for a great job.

Can you advise what the next best spammer registration plugin would be?

It did stop spammer registrations on my site
By , for WP 3.8.1

Spam was not a problem on my site (Akismet was doing a good job), but I was getting spam user registrations. The Stop Spammers plugin stopped them. Thank you so much!

Is the ONLY reason my site is still going!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have a small membership site (50 people or so thus far) and allow open registration. I let the site run on auto-pilot as the publishers do a great job adding content and love what they're doing.

Without this plugin I would have loads and loads of spammers registering on my site!

Thanks! If you don't continue with this plugin, I hope you can find someone who is willing to maintain it - it's a life saver!!
