Ok.  Should we be including a note to the effect that registration is 
temporarily unavailable on the Codex front page?

I thought that anti-spam measures were introduced after the last spam 
blip?  All the stuff in the search results now predates those measures. 
I haven't noticed a large scale spam attack since the last one happened 
and someone from the web team said they had turned something on to 
combat spam.
