How do you stop all the robots registering?  It is so annoying!

Thanks.

I have read the article, but it hasn't really helped.  I am already a member of Akismet and I don't want to approve every member.  I will look again for a plugin but if you know of a good plugin, that would be wonderful.

WangGuard is mentioned in that article.  It stops bot registrations.
