I've had to temporarily disable new user registration due to a large influx of spam accounts. I also had to prune almost 300 new accounts made in the last 3 days. I apologize to any legitimate new users that signed up in that time frame. We will be updating anti-spam countermeasures and registration will be re-opened after. I will keep you all posted.

I've seen from the logs your hard pruning work :-) f****d spammers!

To fix the problem, I've enabled the "Q&A" antispam plugin (see my PM) and reopened the registrations to see if any spam pass the new counter measure.

Please report if that works.

The internet is going down the tubes, 99% of the emails I get are spams, pop-up blockers no longer work, almost every site brings pop-up windows and search results only show ads now, oh well.

maybe not even a bad thing when it's gone after all - besides a very few sites ... :)
