Sorry again to new users for having the signup queue. We’ve had a real problem with spam signups recently.

@misty I noticed in the tech meeting minutes that we are seeing spam signups. I think they are looking into introducing a captcha.

@edsu That sounds like a good idea - I’d love to hear’s experience if it gets implemented!

@misty ok, I'll let you know if I hear anything. I think @redoak or @idmyn may know the details.

@edsu @misty @idmyn yeah, short story is we've had quite a bit. We have a honeypot form field (hidden and only validates on empty string) and it catches some but not all. We might add something else but we don't want recaptcha...

@redoak @misty @idmyn thanks for sharing that! I appreciate the need to not introduce captcha.
