Yep, I got lots of attempts like that in the last few days and a few actually got past the stopforumspam and botscout plugins !

I am seeing the same thing on my site. About 50 over the last 48 hours. Mine is a small site also and I normally would only get 2 or 3 new registration per week.

Stopforum plugin + botscout do a good job anyway, especially botscout, cause they block many bots. Nearly 100 over these last 3 days !

Setting up the plugins (StopForumSpam, and BotScout) seems to have stopped the bot messages from getting thru now. I have only had 1 in the last 24 hours get thru.

I also set up Recaptcha service instead of the default captcha, but I don't know if this has help more so than the StopForumSpam, and BotScout, but figured it couldn't hurt.

I would call this resolved.

I'll test that, too. Good idea
