Please consider temporarily disable all non-OpenID new user creation.

It is quite apparent that spammers are using newly created accounts by manually passing the reCAPTCHA test. OpenID would require them to mass-register on someone else's service (many of them commercial), so this temporary measure would at least shift the burden on someone else.

This is of course bad etiquette, but it will buy some time before Itseez or OpenCV foundation can implement the AskBot upgrade.
