Why did Raddle disable sign-ups? And when will they be opened back up?

I normally create burner accounts when asking or answering sensitive questions so that I separate my identities, but today I noticed the sign-ups have been disabled. I assume it might be because of right wing trolls but I'm not sure. Does anyone know if they're going to be reopened?

Just a suggestion but if the reason is because of right wing trolls, I think an invite-only model could work fine so that right wingers cant even get accounts here because even if someone supplies them with invites, the admins would be able to see who invited who hence cutting off the chain. Otherwise adding email verification and/or restrictions to new accounts like not being able to post right away and having to get your comments approved would also be useful.

A sad little fuck keeps making new accounts to post nazi shit all over the place. I do have a plan for solving this via technical means, but it might take everything from a few days to a couple of weeks before this is in place. In the mean time, registration will be on and off periodically.
