User Registration

by on Mar.28, 2014, under News

I’ve been trying various methods to handle the spam accounts that get registered on wordpress sites. My latest was to require users to verify their e-mail addresses, but that doesn’t seem to really matter to the bots. Since I don’t want to close down registration entirely I have decided that from now on if you don’t have an approved comment within a few days of registering I am deleting the account. Accounts won’t expire, but I just can’t find a better solution.
