Weird Users Registering

  1. I have a WordPress blog (www.jeffreydinsmore.com) that's basically just a small thing for my friends and family. Lately I've been getting a lot of registered users with .ru emails. I don't allow users to post anything but comments, but does anyone know what might be happening? On the off chance that I've somehow gained a loyal Russian following, I wouldn't want to just kick anyone off as a user, but I'm a little nervous that it is spam and/or hacker related. Has anyone else had this situation?

  2. The link you posted to your blog makes it clear that it is not a wordpress.com blog hosted by wordpress. This forum is for bloggers with blog hosted by wordpress.com. We run on different software than wordpress.org does.

    As you are are hosted elsewhere - contact your host. If you are self hosting and have downloaded wordpress.org software then the forum for you is here http://wordpress.org/support

  3. Delete the users - then do as TT says now.

  4. My money is that they're spammers and hitting your comments but, as TT notes, you need to be over at wp.org as these forums are for teh blogs hosted here at wp.com.

  5. .ru emails seem to be russian spam bots. I had a load of them on my blog, aswell as trying to join my forum >.<

  6. They are everywhere. And I am closing all comments on old posts just like engtech did.
