Houston we got a problem!


I thought that “Houston, we got a problem” situation in real life is very rare as programmer’s are magical enough to have an awareness about the problems and users are dumb enough to not to try any thing crazy. but nonsenso@concetto proved me that i am entirely wrong…. I tried to cut some regex check’s on username, email etc (not at all vulnerable) so that pythonanywhere.com doesn’t cut off the account due high cpu usage but the site soon became populated with lots of fake accounts. So i think a regular db cleanup is the only choice for me to maintain the site. I am grateful that those people haven’t tried to write some bot for it.(although it is very easy to do so)
PS: again the external HTTP request restriction(only for free hosting plan) in pythonanywhere.com stopped me from trying some captcha API
