Preventing spam on your Joomla website starts by preventing spam registrations. Because a lot of spam registrations are carried out by 'bots, the best way to deal ensure that 'bots are not bypassing the standard registraton process (including bypassing the CAPTCHA challenge, because 'bots are getting smarter at defeating these things), I recommend https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... alidation/

As a case in point, on a website that I help to manage, we were getting 10 fake registrations each day (even geo-blocking counter-measures, using CAPTCHA and requiring "optional" user fields to be completed). After installing and enabling this plugin, the fake registrations stopped completely. Of course, nothing will prevent real people from registering accounts on a website but that's just a matter of being vigilant. 8)

The only guaranteed way to prevent spam registration happening on a website (any website) is to charge an up-front fee to join the site, right? Spammers won't pay money to join a website, will they? Hmmm? ;)

This is a IPv6 address. Your server must have IPv6 enabled.
