Another spammer question. And concern.

    I just kinda disabled registration , now it's only available to those who first auth through OpenID.
    And spammers still get in. WTF?!
    The registration form is fully empty , nothing there besides a redirect.
    How do they register?

    Registered 12 mins ago. The plugin ( registration only after auth through OpenID. ) was added 30+ mins.

    Maybe OID doesnt help ?
    XenUtiles and Q&A captcha help.
    Have you read all the spam threads ?

    Got it wrong I guess. Okay so:
    There's no way to register , unless you are logging through OpenID ( Steam ) , the default signup page is blank and redirects you to the OpenID (steam) page , after that you put user and done. After that , login could be only done using the OpenID.
    The plugin was added 30+ mins ago. Topic posted 12 mins ago , can't check registration date ( can't find it ) altough I think he registered right before his post.

    I didn't know you were wanting to hide registration for the purpose of stopping spammers. That might not work. There are technical reasons why not. But basically you need to setup good Q&A questions or use an addon like XenUtiles.

    It's not only that , I need to require my users to use OpenID anyway , so I thought I can kill two birds with one rock. Guess it didn't work well.
