New Subscriber Sign Ups Stopped Due to Bots

I’ve shut off the New Account sign-ups due to bogus new users establishing accounts here, probably for spamming posts.  It has been going on for some time, but lately I’ve been deleting around a dozen or so per day and it gets old.

If you want a new subscriber account, drop me an email and I’ll do it for you manually on this end…No more vulnerable automation.  Thanks all.
