Description Bertrand GRONDIN 2007-12-04 09:57:38 UTC
The ConfirmaAccount extension is now spammed by bot from porn sites.

The problem : ConfirmEdit captcha extension doesn't run with this extension since some weeks. Préviously, bot  s were'nt able to submit ConfirmAccount form when ConfirmEdit captcha was actived on this extension. 

I think it will be a good idea to reactivate confirmedit captcha on ConfirmAccount form.

By example, my own wiki is spammed on ConfirmAccount form.

It's very urging to solve this problem. Bots spam the extension form dayly on my wiki. I'm tired to refuse theses account requests
Comment 2 Aaron Schulz 2007-12-29 03:42:27 UTC

Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2008-01-05 23:31:29 UTC
