    Over the last two hours I have had around 40 people subscribe to my blog.
    So I contacted one of the people that registered and he said that he is a
    real subscriber and not spam...

    I don't get it, where are these people comming from and all of the url's and
    emails that they are signing up with are not spammy...

    If this is register spam it's a pretty SLICK Program :rolleyes:

    Can someone shed some light on this

    Don't you have stats plugged in?
    At the very least you'll know where they come from and why.
    That would be a place to start...

    Maybe your directory got added to AMR main list, that would explain it.
