  • Hi, I have set up Easy Sign Up on a clients web site. It works fine, but we are getting a lot of spurious sign ups – ones with hex strings for their name and doubtful looking e-mail addresses.
    I had the honeypot set on but that didn’t seem to make any difference. One small point, the honeypot test defaults to ‘other comment’ but the explanatory text says it should be one word. Is this a problem?
    So – how can I prevent these spurious sign ups and only allow genuine people to sign up?
