Spam problem

Also for security reason isn't good thing to put users agreement text and button before they see registration form? On my test site I have that also. Don't have a spam but also that site is mostly in maintance, just sometimes I open her. But in the statistic I saw that IP numbers with 6...... visited that site.
Just a further note:
After getting yet another variation of the .info mail addy trying to register on my site I decided to do a reverse dns which pointed to "client-151-204-179-29.hamilton.k12.nj.us". A quick Whois revealed the registrant authority is : "neustar.us" and their support e-mail was of course listed.

So I mailed them and they replied with the details of the machine on that ip. It's a School in New Jersey !!!

Quote

As with all K12.NJ.US delegates (per RFC 1480), this is a school district or school in New Jersey.

According to the New Jersey Department of Education, the proper contacts for this school are:

Hamilton Township
90 Park Avenue
Hamilton Square, NJ 08690

Mr. Neil Bencivengo, Superintendent 609-631-2102
Mrs. Carol Chiacchio, Board Secretary/Business Administrator 609-631-4100

Please contact them for further assistance.

There is a disclaimer mod over at venue, just download that and install it. Users have to accept the disclaimer to register, I am hoping it will work.

I know this thread is sort of old, but I need to let people know what I've experienced.

I was getting spammed like everyone else until I downloaded the Security System infusion.

Ever since then I have no problems whatsoever...

I suggest you all give it try.
