POLL, please comment if you have an opinon:
Codeberg.org is being spammed by users using one-time/disposable email services and TOR connections. These spam projects with thousands of bogus issue comments, cause pain for project owners, and spam their notification email inbox. Also, Codeberg's SMTP reputation is harmed.
We consider disabling access via TOR and one-time email providers to maintain smooth operation for all users.
What do you think? Is there a better approach?
Please have your say.
@nipos What approach would you suggest to defend legitimate use cases against spam and DOS, that is practicable?
@codeberg You could use https://mogelmail.de or a similar service to detect fake email addresses and forbid to use them or at least lock those accounts temporarily until your team reviews them.I don't think there's any legitimate use for throwaway email addresses in a Git repository.If you want to stay anonymous,there's always the option to create a second real email address.
