    Wow, that looks Ace - just one question - if you're already running bad behaviour will this be necessary?

    Is this plugin reliable - or in other words; has it been known to block legit users?

    Thanks MrBrian. So I installed her plugin in the mu-plugins folder; and set my settings. It should now help to stop some Splog signups; as well as comment spam? Or is it just comment spam?

    Thanks again!

    It does both. Donncha's a man though, not to mention the head honcho behind WPMU :D.

    Thanks MrBrian for BOTH tips. LOL

    And Donncha - no disrespect. I know you're behind Wordpress MU - and appreciate all your work. I must have been placing "Donncha" with "Donna" subconsciously. :-D
