I'm considering switching the signup process on this instance to being directly moderated, instead of fully open; around 30% of the signups at the moment are companies that only want to put their links online.

Does anyone have any concerns about this?

I have turned on account moderation. I actually turned it on a few weeks ago, but then turned it off during to make it easier for attendees to join.

However, less than a day later, an account appeared posting links which clearly broke the instance rules, so it's back to moderation again.

It's not actually that much trouble to approve the accounts, and it's vastly preferable to having to suspend abusive ones, so overall I think this was the right choice.

Anyway! Ruby! :ruby:
