Just look up PWNTCHA on Google. CAPTCHA isn't enough, alone, but it is
definitely a deterrent. Certificates are ultimately the definitive
answer, I think. They are free off start.com, but you need a real and
proper email address to get it. You can then also complain to start.com
and they will retract the certificate.
Or the whole sign-up process needs to become a lot more interactive, OOB
registration might be the answer.
