    Are you saying your xrumer registered to your own forum?
    The best way to handle registrations is to hire mods, anything else would just slow xrumer down, but not stop it. You could just not worry about the registrations though. :D

    2 things: remove the HOME PAGE FIELD from the subscription page and also DON'T ALLOW LINKS IN THE SIGNATURE... you won't stop them from joining but it will be useless for them to join (of course that 90% of the mebers of your forum will also be pissed if you do that)

    i don't think so bot is checking those fields to register or not . also i don't think so human is manually attacking my forum :D you know like scraping from internet and registration.

    i added custom question can xrumer pass this ?
