We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
Assess reports of spam registrations persisting even with ReCAPTCHA testing enabled.
Assessed; the "stop forum spam" plugin (to be included in OJS 2.4.3) should address it. I couldn't find any obvious weakness in our ReCAPTCHA implementation, yet at least a couple of installations are reporting continuing spam registrations. Suspect either a ReCAPTCHA-beating bot or individual humans.
