Hello?

Did anyone noticed that lately lots of users register with emails @webmail.co.za, @outlook.com, @hotmail.com?
All those emails are ticked as spam emails (by google search)

How to prevent this spam registrations?

Good question. I use a Captcha plugin, but that only cut down on maybe 40 or 50 percent of the spam registrations. They keep adding up.

Install an anti-spam plugin. Try anti-captcha.

I use anti-captcha and it has cut the spam drastically - one every week or two. Plus, the human user never sees a thing

I think you are referring to anti-captcha:

I like it. It seems to harass legitimate guests less, and is arguably more effective than straight captcha.

I can only assume that was some sort of auto-correct fail, but yes, I meant anti-captcha!

I've fixed the post above.
