Since ive joined Symbiostock ive noticed a sudden increase in registrations. Obviously people have to sign up the site to purchase. Is there a way I can check this or should I be concerned? Can I do much to stop this. I had maybe 5 in 3 years just on Wordpress. Ive had 10 in a week since joining Symbiostock

I run every email address through google, many times there will be a post or page listing emails as spammers. I just delete the acct. There is really nothing we can do to stop this.

You can add a CAPTCHA field to the registration page either by changing the source code or using a plugin.

There's a nice plugin called Anti-Captcha, which somebody here recommended a month or two back. I've got it and it seems to work quite well. Runs "silently" in the background without the legitimate user being aware of it.
