Are registered users spamming me? (2 posts)

    I require users to be registered before they can comment. I get lots of spam comments that sit waiting for approval. Are these spammers regsitering themselves or is there another way they are doing it?

    Is there a recommended Captcha for WordPress? I'm currently using version 2.0.5 and happy with it. Not sure if the latest version helps on spamming (or will bring about new problems).

    A better solution might be a combination of Akismet and bad Behavior plugins. Set the filters as needed to block anything with a url submission so you can view it before approval.
