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.

" Keep Open-Source open for everyone"

Please keep in mind that people use Tor for very legitimate reasons and need to rely an it for their own safety and security.
Blocking Tor should be a last resort, if at all considered.

@ck What productive approach do you suggest to stop spamming?

@codeberg @ck try to the detect the bougs accounts by the amount of issues they commented in which amount of time.
Or make the confirmation link a captcha itself ("the last digit is the result of 3+4")


@dadosch @ck Per issue? This would disable issue creation via API completely, right?

@dadosch @ck That's currently not the problem. Accounts are created manually, being a while dormant, then start creating thousands of issues.
