Add an akismet approval queue
It would be great if you guys integrated with akismet on registration forms and had an "approval queue" in the admin for those found to be spam so if they were legit you can mark as ham. As it stands now there is no way to prevent or throttle malicious signups. You can apply with any info you want and there is no way to protect against that. Bots can cause chaos in short order.
We historically would use a captcha but the problem with captchas is they are 99% breakable now, our own wordpress login captcha was beatable using googles recaptcha so thats not really useful here on the form, not to mention it annoys users.

You can use.

We are fully integrated with akismet for commenting on our site. This seems like a logical extension to that.
