Plugin has issues
By ,

This plugin is very hyperactive and only half works. I ran it for about 2 weeks and I had so many issues. Made SURE I had it set up the way I wanted it to work and it refused to allow people to register to my site. It locked out users and admins with prejudice.

It behaves violently and unholy to legitimate users while spammers got through the registrations just fine.

It is worthless. Hey if you don't want users this is the plugin in for you.

Completely deleted the sign-up page

After installation it completely deleted my sign-up page. It sure does prevent users signing up. Spammers and legitimate users.

Does nothing
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin does nothing. I've been getting user registration spam like crazy on my forums. I added this plugin because I liked the description: "aggressive, non-apologetic", etc. Well, it does nothing. I still get dozens of registrations a day. Sorry, but this plugin isnt helping.

Great until it locks you out of your own site

No end of problems since installing this plugin. Firstly clients are reporting they are getting warning emails about me when I send them emails. Then the plugin locks me out of the site.

Neither robust nor foolproof, I would avoid this plugin.

Didn't work at all for me
By , for WP 3.4.2

This rating isn't intended for revenge or to be rude. It just plainly didn't work for me. Not 1-hr after I installed it (pretty much left everything default except for adding a few blocked email domains and a redirect URL) I got a spammer registered again. It was even an email address that I placed in the blocked URL list... maybe I'm not doing something right but there are quite a bit of settings.

Thanks,
Jeff

Useless, too many false positives

Plugin does what it should not do: blocks already registered legitimate users (including those with Admin or Author status) instead of blocking new registrations.
