I had opened up the site for new members registrations about two weeks ago. I didn’t announce this on the site as it was more of a test which confirmed my fears, as almost immediately, the site started receiving spam registrations, an average of 4-5 a day. I spent about 10-15 minutes each day deleting these spam accounts and banning their IP addresses, but still they came in.
Now, 10 minutes a day isn’t too much, some people might think, but if you multiply that by 6 days, that’s one hour of my life spent just deleting these spammy accounts. I don’t wish to waste any minute of my life on these useless activities, so I’m closing the new registrations for good until I can find a fail-safe way to enable this. The captcha requirement I had used on the registration form did not work. Until I can find one that works that will keep out robotic registrations, I will disable registrations.
