On disabling direct registration
I have disabled direct registration on this instance a few weeks ago – right before the current influx of new users on the Fediverse.
Good timing, I guess.
I tried to keep manually deleting all these spam posts, but it was to much too handle (or more: I was too lazy to check the database regularly for new spam posts).
The current registration system is working out great for the moment. People even add some introduction/CV on their mails – and they are all great. I never required this (nor do I plan to require it in the future), but it is very lovely. 🧡 Thanks!
BTW: There was a new #WriteFreely release a few days ago and I'm planning to update this instance soon™.
