[Plugin: Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin] Why did 3.5 send users to a spam link?

    The default value for the redirection link was an affiliate link (not spam). In my beta test, I was experimenting with sending spammers to an affiliate link, so that users could make money from the spammer traffic.

    When I released the production code, I did not remove the beta code, and due to a bug, it became the default behavior. I quickly released the code to undo this mistake. I hope everyone updates soon so as to fix this.

    I released the code without checking that the redirect was working correctly, and now I am paying for it.

    I would not be surprised or offended if everyone stopped using the plugin.
