I have a community blog where the public can register to post entries and comment. I noticed I was getting several spam registrations per day. Username is 9 random lower case letters, email is from hotmail and always a URL from a french company. Obvious spam.
I have disabled comment registration and create entry. They were still appearing. I removed all the code from the site that had anything to do with registrations. I am still getting these registrations. Fortunately there are no permissions set. I also removed the general "add user" from the blog user list.
Any ideas how this might be happening? How to disable community for this Blog (have another private, protected blog also using the community addons.
