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.
