Some of you may have noticed to recent increase in spam on Typophile. We are finding that they are creating multiple usernames in a very short period of time, bogging down the system and filling the forums with garbage.
So, for a very short time this weekend, we are disabling new user registration for visitors. We'll turn it back on as soon as we can find a solution for the spam attacks.
Hope this isn't going to cause too much of an inconvenience for anyone!
Enjoy your weekend :)
