I assume there's a good reason. But no new accounts?

I shut them off a while back when I noticed that the site performance was in the shitter and that the last several thousand had all been spammers. It's probably been shut off for like a year or more. I can turn it back on if a human being was trying to register.

Requiring an OP approval should do the trick although it sounds like wading through a lot of bogus applications.

Maybe geting something beyond a captcha type security plug-in would help. Some ask for multiple "human" verifications.
