    I am using bbpress with my website and since a long time I am getting weird users and names like this one for example


    I was getting like 1 new weird user everyday but yesterday I got more than 120 users and all have weird names and last time one of them wrote a post in my forum it almost didn’t have any links but just weird characteristics and letters

    so is that a robot or real people trying to get my website down? because not always I see them in my stats like new statcounter visitors and they are stealth

    knowing that I am using Akismet but it’s not working

    so please help me

    and I asked in bbpress forums but I didn't get an answer yet and it's really bothering me that issue that's why i asked again here

    It is spammers spamming your site by the look of it.

    Do you have the Akismet plugin activated and have a valid API key?

    Yes I tried it and the API key is Valid but it's not working to detect the spam users and I am not even noticing them in the stats like when I get 100 new user in the stats like statcounter it won't show 100 new users or not even 1 new went to the registration page and that's weird too!
