Sorry guys - registration on is closed until an effective weapon against the current spam attack in the XMPP network is found.

Many users report being targetted by spammers recently (me included) so it’s good that trashserver did temporarily block registrations.

@wiktor @trashserver doesn't ejabberd/prosody support registration limitation/captcha and any way to detect spam accounts and suspend them?

@tigase They do, but the Captchas are not very strong and easy to decode with modern image analysis.

trashserver seems to not be affected so much, compared to other servers. Still it is safer to disable registrations for now... until a better registration process is developed.

@tigase it seems like a lot of XMPP servers are facing many more registrations by bots than usual and some spam messages / contact requests are sent to users.
