Random signup slug generator to fight spam
Heres an idea I had. Why not create a plugin that generates random slugs for the sign up page, I would write it myself because I have an idea of how I want to implement it, but I don’t have the time.
I tried the approach of changing my signup slug to a new one and it worked for a while but suddenly the spammers are back again. I think they have figured out this trick and they possibly manually have someone go to the site and find the new slug, or they have found a way to bruteforce find it.
If we can have a sign up slug that randomly changes to random strings its going to seriously irritate the spammers and make their job harder.
I’m sure some users won’t want to use this because they will want a fixed slug for loggin in perhaps for search engines to find, but many users could get away with this and have a nice link for logging in.
