Site Note

I’m going on a short business trip shortly, so I’ve once again locked down new user accounts as in the last 24 hours, I’ve had a bunch of spam accounts join up. It’s interesting that this is happening more often now. It used to be that spammers wanted very badly to hide where they were coming from, and so generally hesitated to register, since you can’t access something like this blog without an actual user somewhere receiving and reading a confirmation email.

    Maybe they’re getting better at automating that? (Or does WordPress have sufficient safeguards? I forget from when I registered.)

    Maybe. It’s fairly sporadic but when it happens, it comes in big waves. I may need captchas as well so that someone can’t just register and then turn on the spambot.
