@feditips Internet safety 101: random link? don't click. Block their arse instead ;)

@feditips both messages i got were from, hmmm :|

maybe there should be some feature just to increase account creation friction, something like having to click on a link in an email each day for 2 days ...


Admins can optionally require people to write a little message saying why they want an account, then the admins have to approve each account manually.

(Another option is having invitation-only signups, but that makes it difficult for people new to the platform.)

@feditips looool, I came here after a long time and found both this answer and this post.
