Registration Disabled -- due to bot problems
« on: June 12, 2011, 06:46:15 PM »
There seems to be some kind of registration bot on the loose - as I am getting at least one registration per hour with nonsense names and emails.

I plan to restart registration in a few days. My apologies to new potential members who would like to post, but cannot because registration is blocked.

Sincerely,
Michael

Seems the captcha module has not been working, so registration was still not working all the time. I have fixed this.
I need to figure out why it was not working all the time (almost never actually).

My apologies to anyone coming back after trying and not succeeding to register.

p.s. One lesson - don't make a change just before a long period of (vacation) absence.
