Support » Plugin: Easy Sign Up » Akismet not helping against spam?

    A client of mine has been using Easy Sign Up without problems for months, but recently a spam bot seems to have found their site. Hundreds of submissions started flooding in. The honeypot solution has given some legitimate users trouble signing up (I think this has to do with automatic form filling that some browsers do), so I opted to try Akismet. We got an API key, installed and activated the Akismet plugin, and input the API key.

    This doesn’t seem to be doing anything though – we’re still seeing spam coming in frequently.

    This is the kind of spam we’re seeing.

    Using Easy Sign Up 3.4 + Easy Sign Up Data Extra 5.3 + Akismet 3.3.

    Any tips? Did I do something wrong? Can anything be done to help here? Thanks in advance.
