I put a unilateral ban on @bxox.info email addresses, as well as the subnet WandaBiz was registering from...

...couple that with changing the security question an I'm pretty sure we're going to be 'bot free for a while...or not.

:shock:

Hi kids, I just removed another 30+ registrations that rolled in over the weekend while I was out of town...

...now since we've got a custom countermeasure in place I'm sure we're going to find the answer to our anti-bot question posted on Yandex somewhere...but not to worry.

I've deleted them all and will start banning full subnets from the offenders country.

:D

So, if you're a real person that tried to register with an eerily randomly generated name and a bunk e-mail address please feel free to resubmit your registration.

Thanks!

PS - 94.46.223.* just got banned...255 is a small step. Anyone want to shoot for 65025?
