Generally, these come in at a rate on one per second from automated fake user spam systems. It takes automation to combat this.
IP Address 193.201.224.230 - City Kiev, Ukraine. (They can be from anywhere in the world!) 188.92.75.244 is from Riga, Latvia.
I just deleted all but the last ten days. (Are you sure you wish to delete 28,953 records from the logs?) YES!

What would Smokstak look like without this filter?

In addition, I manually check the location and approve each new user.
