I think I am going to have to move infosec.exchange to invite only. The number of automated registrations (or mechanical Turk style registrations) is out of control. Less that .1% (1 out of a thousand) registrations appears to be real.
Approval based signup is good too :)
@selea I use moderated signups - but I have to wade through hundreds of registrations every day to see if any are legit (there rarely are).
Unsurprising, but pathetic none the less. I think the invitation only method is the way to go. You don't need the current hassle and it would keep the community maybe more infosec-focused.
@jerry Sucks, but it makes sense. I've seen this happen with Slacks and Discords also.
@jerry What a slog. Thanks for running such a great instance!
@jerry I haven't tracked it in awhile, what's the motive these days?
@robertcc link spam, as far as I can tell
A Mastodon instance for info/cyber security-minded people.
