For an unknown reason we’re experiencing an influx of what appear to be spam user registrations on the blog. Due to this, we are shutting down user registrations until we can institute superior countermeasures.
If you wish to create a user account please contact us at our e-mail address of firstname.lastname@example.org. We will create your account for you. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Consequently, if you can suggest something better than SABRE and Askimet for WordPress we’d be most appreciative.
