We get lots of questions about LibreOffice on our social media channels,
and I usually point people in the direction of Ask LibreOffice. However,
sometimes I get replies from people complaining that they have to
register for yet another service.

On this page (when logged out):


Underneath "Please click any of the icons below to sign in", could we
add a short line of text like so:

"(Registration is required as a spam protection measure.)"

Or something like that. What do you think?

I have seen this type of explanation text before, on other sites. I do not remember what these texts exactly stated, but they used the registration to fight "spam" and "robo systems".

I remember a few years ago accessing a "help site" that did not have registration. That site more spam than help.
