Just want to inform you that I'm in the process of changing the access method for the board to go through a service named Cloudflare.

In theory it should allow me to block traffic from Russia, Ukraine, Viet-Nam and Korea... which are the places from which I get spammed with fake registrations.

Hopefully it will be painless but don't worry if there are some disruptions in the coming hours.

From past experiences, it's likely that you'll see a Cloudflare page show up before you access the site, so that would be normal if you see it.

More news later.

So far so good.

Fake account registrations have completely stopped, and I was getting hundreds every day.

If you've experienced negative sides of the move I'd be interested in hearing about it.

The service is pretty automated, I read that you could be prompted with a captcha challenge but I have yet to see one myself.
