Maybe I'm just mis-understanding the purpose or function of Akismet, but I'm getting a TON of bogus email registrations to my website and, consequently a TON of bogus prayer requests. I thought Akismet was supposed to be able to trap and prevent this nonsense. Am I missing something? I cannot seem to find any settings that allow me to ratchet up the level of screening, and any time I try to report a bogus registration I receive an error message from Akismet. So... Any thoughts? Should I be using an additional plugin or something that allows me to approve all new subscribers BEFORE they are let loose on our site?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
