Will implementing https SSL aid in the battle against spam registrations?

    I’ve read many a topic on the battle against registration spam and I’ve tried each and every single one with varying amounts of success. I’ve managed to keep the site clean for months on end and then…. all hell breaks lose!

    I’m at the point where I am seriously considering hacking the core to allow me to moderate new registrations however before I do that I wanted to run the idea of SSL by the technical experts on the site?

    I’m thinking about implementing SSL purely for registrations, the theory being (I’m no expert!!) that the post back would be encrypted and would therefore bots wouldn’t be capable?

    Thank you in advance for your time
