    Ok well someone has been creating tons new user accounts on one of my wpmu sites.

    All from the same ip, all with stupid user/blog names like "nick782312" or "shelly875640", and is using emails spread across like 50 different .info domains (all hosted on the same server).

    Creates an account every 4-30 min, but doesn't do anything with the blog, just leaves it blank and then sets up a diff blog. Has been creating them CONSTANTLY for the last two days (close to 200 now).

    Hasn't stopped for sleep so I figure he/she must be using a bot and is outsourcing the captchas (or cracking recaptha?). I can just mark as spam and be done with it, but I am curious to see what they are up to.

    What's the point of this? Anyone had an experience like this with wpmu?

    Thanks, Grizzy
