Doesn't block spam registrations
By , for WP 4.4.1

I've had this plugin running for a week now and every day I'm emailed about more spam registrations. This is exactly what this plugin was supposed to stop, but somehow obvious spammers with mail.ru addresses are signing up.

While I can block those TLD's from being used (theoretically, we'll see if that actually works or not), I'm disappointed that such an obvious source of spam isn't being blocked as a default setting.

This plugin cause user registration email not sending
By ,

I don't know what's going on.
Today I spent 2 hours to figure why new user registration email not sending while admin notification is sent.
Mail server checked, external SMTP server used. All are same problem.
Once I disable this plugin, everything work like charm.

Note:
* WordPress version: 4.4
* I tried several times activate and deactivate this plugin. And quite confirmed it cause the problem I mentioned.

Not sure why it's not working

SPAM registrations seem to have increased after installing this plugin. I can't seem to find any reason why, so I'm looking for alternatives.
