  • After upgrading to the latest version 2.7.7.1
    I have started to have the same issue.
    Loads of bots can post comments, even though captcha are enabled.

    Have you found any solution?

    Just if you want to check, my blog is at lucacerone.net

    Same issue. After upgrading to 2.7.7.1 SPAM registrations became rampant. Any solutions?

    I’ve got the same problem on my website, but I’m still waiting for bug fix, trying to be patient and deleting all spam accounts. 🙁

    Same issue for me.. I have upgraded to the latest and still get spam texts..

    FYI – nothing will stop all spam, the SI captcha and similar options certainly reduce it, and add costs to those who try to abuse your site as well.

    On some of our sites we just turned off comments and allow people to email a comment if they want one posted. On most of our sites we only allow comments from registered users, and we use a question / answer system on registration pages.

    The random question / answer things seem to block many, something like: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-no-bot-question/

    but I love SI capthca, and it helps with all those bots trying to crack our login credentials – helps, but does not stop all.

    If your hosting environment will allow you to use something like max-mind’s geo-ip thing, we reduced comment spam and registration spam by 95% simply by redirecting China visitors to a different site. Now we are considering redirecting all visitors from the Ukraine and a few others as well.

    Hope this info helps you guys.

    Guys, I activated Ban Hammer plugin again and it works. You can also combine it with SI CAPTCHA, no problem with registrations and the filter realy works. You can block all users using for example email.ru or you can block only a single email address. Hope it will help you as well. Plugin -> http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/ban-hammer
