Anti-spam

- Updates280
 
For many, many months, we hadn't seen a shadow of a spambot of this site, but then, everything changed one fateful day when they descended one by one in a laboriously slow fashion and... Created accounts, only to do nothing.

But I knew that this was merely because I have mod activation enabled, so I got to work on a measure to banish them into the abyss from which they crawled. I spent countless minutes concocting a preliminary line of defence, deployed it and boom. The spambots were never to be seen again.

Or so I would have liked. But, the spambots actually raised the white flag and didn't even attempt to scale my walls again, however we now have far more rigorous anti-spam defences with more things in the pipelines for future commits.
