    Having some problems with this plugin. It only seems to be partially working.

    "Normal" people who register to my site gets the email, they click the link and the account is confirmed like it should.
    HOWEVER, I'm still getting bot registrations. The bots does not get a role assigned to them, so they can't login and start posting, but still. They are able to register in some way and it's annoying to have to login every now and then to delete these "members".

    Is there some workaround? Am I doing something wrong or is the plugin bugged in some way?

    I've never heard about or seen a bot able to create a user when Sabre is running. But everything is prone to happen in this world.

    Can you give some details about the Sabre's parameters you activated ?

    Yeah, I know and I don't get it... It's all so strange.

    Here are some links. I only screenshotted the options I've enabled.

    And here is a screenshot of a few typical bot registrations:

    As you can see, the normal user gets their role as subscribers as they should, but the bots doesn't get a role assigned to them at all, so I'm guessing Sabre is at least doing something?

    I don't mean to bump, but any ideas on a solution? I would appreciate it a lot!

    I recommend to tick the "Block if Javascript unsupported" option in the "Stealth Test" tab of the Sabre's parameters.
    As most of the bots have no Javascript capabilities (when browsers of normal users have it turned on by default), it's a good practice to have it active.
