I got in touch with Roger directly and he quickly grabbed the bull by the horns and after looking into my setup he rewrote the contribution, added and article to my site and not long after I had a working site with spam bot protection which to the time of writing this has not had a spam account created.
For me Captcha and reCaptcha did nothing to stop the reg bots doing there worst. The way that JRPassPhrase intercepts the opening of your registration page and requires your chosen pass phrase to be correctly entered before registration can progress, seems to be the answer to halting these reg bots.
I was very impressed with the positive response from Roger the developer and the way he approached my request for assistance. Many people would have simply said sorry the contribution is not compatible with your setup but Roger took the other approach and made his product fit my needs.
If you are having problems with spam accounts being created on your site, I suggest you get Rogers JRPassPhrase installed.
Thanks you so much for your product and assistance Roger.
