    Hi there,

    Does this plugin also work with v.1.5.1?

    I am literally having to do this in the database because one by one is so tedious. I don't know that a query could be created for this at all. Any suggestions?

    @Scott - sorry to be hijacking the thread, but uhmmm...

    @Delia - this is EXACTLY what my ZX AntiSpam is for (although still awaiting mod's approval, it can be downloaded from my site). It won't help with *current* spam accounts, but it will "stop" future attempts to create such accounts. Check the support thread to see what it actually does. Hope it helps.
    And... You basically could reverse-engineer the code in the plugin and create a custom script that counts the number of capital letters and delete those accounts, although I wouldn't do that without making absolutely sure you're not deleting any actual customer accounts...

    the issue is in this case - only one client who pays a tiny fee for maintenance costs per month. Not viable to spend a lot of time with any of this - especially reverse engineering anything. She's not yelling and is being patient. I would just like an easy fix here. And I'm not registering with your site to get access to an unproven module.

    OK, no worries, hopefully Scott has an answer for you.

    And I'm not registering with your site to get access to an unproven module.
    LOL, okay... Sorry to have mentioned it...
    Side note: yeah, you need to register, but what's stopping you to register with fake account details? Wilma Flintstone, 345 Cave Stone Road, Bedrock, wilma(at)f-spam.com
    Best of luck, I hope you find a solution.

    So I discovered these crazy fake accounts are simply using the last active country so that all are one country - and the new changes fix the problem! Thanks, Scott, for adding that!
