False spam protection? - skruffysdeveloper - 2015-03-10

Fresh install of MyBB and whenever a user trys to register (any) they get a message that says "Our systems detect that you may be a spammer and therefore you have been denied registration. If you feel this is a mistake, please contact the Administrator."

Version 1.7.4

I can login to my administrator account but if I or anyone else tries to register an account it gives the message.

Are you using the StopForumSpam checker? See if their IPs are in the blacklist.

Yes, stopspam sometimes goes crazy like this.
If you want, you can disable stopspam check and enable hidden captcha and newest google NoCaptcha features instead.
