I'm running 3.0.8 with reCAPTCHA, but spammers are still able to register, so I need to find a way to improve the spambot countermeasures. I've read the "read first post" about countermeasures but I'd like to avoid switching to some insane tests (like crazy math) out of consideration to real users.
I'm pleased that all spammy messages are routed to the Moderator Control Panel for approval, so that part works fine. But the spammy registrations still show up in my member list, with spammy URLs -- that's what I want to get rid of.
I could manually delete the existing spammy registrations, but that won't stop new ones.
Is there a MOD that simply hides zero-post users from the member list and from the member count in the forum stats in the homepage footer? If spammy registrations are simply never visible, my mission is accomplished.
