Right now I average 150 emails per day for activation confirmation, throw in all the bots asking for signup, I'd be at 300/day.

The moderator must *personally* approve all emails..
That is, even though a bot can go through the whole process

a human must also email the moderator and say "hey activate me".

He said that cut down on all spam bots altogether.

I'm going to have to look into some alternative, because the activations are turning into a major chore. The vast majority, easily 90% of them, are bots. Problem is, I can really only ID the bots by the goofy names they come up with, and occasionally a person signs up with a goofy name and I delete their email. If it's questionable, I can go look a their profile to check the email address, but when trying to catch up with 450 activation requests...these things definitely fall through the cracks.
