POLL, please comment if you have an opinon:

Codeberg.org is being spammed by users using one-time/disposable email services and TOR connections. These spam projects with thousands of bogus issue comments, cause pain for project owners, and spam their notification email inbox. Also, Codeberg's SMTP reputation is harmed.

We consider disabling access via TOR and one-time email providers to maintain smooth operation for all users.

What do you think? Is there a better approach?
Please have your say.


@codeberg notabug.org appears to have had similar problems, as they disabled access over their Tor onion service. git over ssh is still possible with it, but I'd prefer if the website were to work as well

@utf8equalsX There are surely perfectly legitimate use cases, especially for users living in disadvantages countries. Still we need to find a mode of operation that ensures that single troublemakers cannot disrupt functionality required by other contributors.

@codeberg Do you operate a hidden service and is this spam traffic coming through it, or through Tor exit nodes via clearnet?

@utf8equalsX The traffic is coming through Tor exit nodes, we do not operate a hidden service
