Isn't it great when a plugin just works 100% with no ifs or buts...

Thank you.

Please keep this updated!

Brilliant!

This plugin has saved me so many sleepless nights, being hounded by a troll is not a nice thing at all. This plugin has at least given me a fighting chance to make it slightly more difficult for the person because now a new email address will be needed to be created next time he registers.

Thanks Ban Hammer BIG thumbs up from me! :D

Does the job

Great plugin that does as advertised. It has helped me block some, but not all registration spam. It would be great if we could blacklist emails by Regular Expression. I block a domain, but then these spammers use a numbered subdomain to get around it!

Very good and useful plugin

My vote goes for this useful and well-written plugin.
Simple, reliable, helps a lot.
Also the author is responding very promptly in case of questions or issues reports.

Limited use

Does the plugin work only with standard WordPress registration page? On my Woocommerce / Venedor theme / custom registration page - it is not working.

Simple and it works

The title says it all.

I update my domain list from: https://gist.github.com/michenriksen/8710649

I have a nice little list of @domain.com's that are now banned. This plugin was the last missing link to getting my buddypress site spam free and allow my users to be free to create their own groups etc.

Now when I get a splogger I just add them to the list before deleting their account and they are gone. I still get the odd one from a new domain but about 90% of the spammers that get through my other defenses are now gone.

Does exactly what it claims to do.

One of the few plugins I've ever run across that does exactly what it purports to do, in a simple, no-nonsense manner.

I was getting HUNDREDS of spam registrations per month (it had gotten up to 50+ a day) on my site, and within minutes of installing, the email notifications of new users signing up from these "iffy" domains stopped cold.

I'm not a programmer, and could not afford to hire anyone to solve this. I investigated on my own, and found solutions that either just didn't work, or actually broke my site, and screwed up my registration page (it's a customized registration screen).

Thank goodness I found Ban Hammer.
