@mdm for now it is working. The spam registration that was going on for weeks is now down to zero, let's hope they don't find a work around.
@mdm well, in theory it would take at least 3 seconds per request. So, they could make 20 registrations a minute. Still a big pain if they really wanted to be like that but I never seen nothing close to those even before implementing these "traps". It's just more work they would need to put into building a throttling mechanism.
Also, at those volumes probably IP blocking would work because it's hard to use a unique IP for each request when we are talking a volume like that.
