I noticed not long ago a couple of my websites were being attacked by Bots. These Bots would sign up many users to the website one after another without limits. I thought reCAPTCHA would stop this, but it did not. I was thinking they were really smart Bots because they could get past the reCAPTCHA. I was wrong. I was able to add a simple fix by adding a hidden field in the registration form. If blank then it is human, if anything in it then Bot. I was sceptical it would work, but almost a week now and the Bot problem has almost disappeared. No more random new users that never login. There will be some more testing before I push the update. Let me know if you see any similar issues.
