<p>Currently reports in the german forum for more spam-related activity (<a href="https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=822680#p822680" rel="nofollow">https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=822680#p822680</a>). Captcha could lead to problems for visual impaired people. Other than that, the honey-pot is a nice first solution.</p>
<p><a href="https://switching.software/replace/google-recaptcha/" rel="nofollow">https://switching.software/replace/google-recaptcha/</a> and a longer text about why reCaptcha is probably not needed <a href="https://nearcyan.com/you-probably-dont-need-recaptcha/" rel="nofollow">https://nearcyan.com/you-probably-dont-need-recaptcha/</a> there are also several suggestions for alternatives listed. A simple question+answer field looks like it could work, but its an additional thing everybody has to answer. But this also happens when introducing a Captcha.</p>
<p>Restricting PM for a specific time may help, but is not good for people who register just to create a note and/or want to ask someone legitimate questions.</p>
