And captchas would be welcome in inband registration too. I think that
part of that flood was coming from our server too, since yesterday we
had a bot registering accounts. We blocked it in few minutes, but it
was able send a bulk of messages. In ejabberd there is an option for
limiting the number of registrations per IP, the problem is that in
our case almost all the clients are natted in large networks
