I am reluctant to suggest disabling registration especially now when 0.8.0 will be frozen and then released shortly. The spam is out of control though, I agree. I’m sure if anyone on the list has suggestions they would be appreciated.

My experience with this: disable registration and purge the spamming
users ASAP. Then look for a solution. A captcha[0] in the registration
form seems to be fine.
