    107 = This site =
    108 This site allows any registered user to add and modify wiki pages and "tickets" (bug reports.)  Registration has
    109 traditionally been a simple matter of clicking on a link (in the upper right of each page), filling out a web form
    110 to give yourself a user name and password, and clicking the OK button; that simple manual step has usually been enough
    111 to deter spammers.
    112 
    113 Unfortunately, that simple step no longer seems to be adequate, and (presumably via some automated process) spammers
    114 have been able to register for accounts here and use those accounts to ... do what they do.  Until we can find a better
    115 way to ensure that real human beings are registering for accounts on this site (and neither spammers nor their automated
    116 tools would fit that description), we've disabled the "Register" link and functionality.  (This shouldn't affect the ability
    117 of anyone who's already registered to log in here, but it does make it a little harder for new users to register.)
    118 
    119 If you don't have an account on this Trac site and would like one, please send a message to "trac-register" AT "clozure.com";
    120 please include your name and a preferred user name.  We'll create an account for you and send you back the login details; you
    121 should be able to log in here using that information and change your password/otherwise manage your account.)
    122 
    123 Hopefully, we'll find a better solution (captchas, email confirmation) to this problem soon.
