Prevention of fake accounts?
#1
Does anyone know of a way to screen out bots and fake accounts?

I am seeing some new users that look suspicious, but I do not want to be too aggressive and not allow them in, just in case I am wrong. Sure, I can ban them after the fact... but I was thinking of adding something like a Captcha as part of the registration process, I am just not entirely sure how to go about that.

I have had three accounts now that have tried to spam the site with garbage related to the sex trade. This is frustrating, but not wholly unexpected. I have seen several registrations that have seemed suspicious, but I did/do not want to be Machiavellian in my approach to managing this community. So I will continue to ban and prune where needed.

Thank you for your patience.
