Being stupid about these things I ask here for your insight.
My site intuhorses.com has virtually no traffic.
Checking users today I discovered that in the last month I've had 395 new registrations, up from 0 the prior month.
All of them are apparently coming from my ip address and are all obviously fraudulent. As the following.
bobja.oneshiya.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7.7@gmail.com
alekmerol1@wkime.pl
m.ar.c.u.s.s.c.h.e.nk.eberg@gmail.com
wagner.l.u.t.h.e.rse.n@gmail.com
and so on 391 more times. Of course I assume this will continue and have no idea how to address this problem.
My provider NetworkSolutions says they can't do anything unless I were to use their forms etc.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Yours
Mick Natco

I've noticed a couple of these as well. I'm running PS3.

in the users table, you should be able to see the IP of the rogue registrations, you can use an htaccess rule to prevent those IP addresses from accessing your site:
