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.

Great until it locks you out of your own site
By ,

No end of problems since installing this plugin. Firstly clients are reporting they are getting warning emails about me when I send them emails. Then the plugin locks me out of the site.

Neither robust nor foolproof, I would avoid this plugin.

Didn't work at all for me
By , for WP 3.4.2

This rating isn't intended for revenge or to be rude. It just plainly didn't work for me. Not 1-hr after I installed it (pretty much left everything default except for adding a few blocked email domains and a redirect URL) I got a spammer registered again. It was even an email address that I placed in the blocked URL list... maybe I'm not doing something right but there are quite a bit of settings.

Thanks,
Jeff

Useless, too many false positives
By , for WP 3.5.1

Plugin does what it should not do: blocks already registered legitimate users (including those with Admin or Author status) instead of blocking new registrations.
