More User Spam

Due to the continued user spamming, we have enabled CAPTCHA on the Registration Page.

What is user spamming?  It is the “automated” creation of user profiles, so an attacker can use them for nefarious purposes.  It may be an attempt against the hosting provider’s server(s) of this site, or an attempt to use the email-sending ability of this site, targeting other parties.  For instance, where do you think those “Viagra” comment spams come from?

Hopefully this will make it more difficult for them, and unfortunately a minor inconvenience to future new members.

More User Spam

Just deleted more accounts, presumably created by bot nets.

Here is a message to the Real People:  make sure you answer the questions accurately, in particular the Android Device question.  We only use this information to ensure it’s a human, not for marketing.
