My Gitea instance got spammed by banana.dog: git.exozy.me/explore/users

It now has nearly 800 users, almost all of which are from banana.dog 🤔

Hmm, I really need to implement domain blocking in Gitea soon, once I have more time...

Did you try captchas?

Concerning that, Gitea will soon integrate the cool mcaptcha project: github.com/go-gitea/gitea/pull

@maze Captchas wouldn't work here, since the banana.dog users didn't register normally. Instead, whenever a remote user interacts with the instance via ActivityPub, a corresponding local user is created, since that instance is running the latest code from gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea.
