Given all the commercial signups we get (probably mostly by bots operated by social media promotion agencies), I kind of feel like it'd be worth trying this plan:
We could call it purr.toot.cat ("purr" for PR).
sounds like you're just making more work for yourself.
i would expect all social media bots to ignore the bill from toot.cat (but that is just a guess)
thank you for your part in making toot.cat so nice
@woozle I’m in favor of this. Fee can be waived if new sign up has a referral from an existing user in good standing, because I’m certain none of us are going to knowingly recommend a spam account.
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
