Local signup disabled due to heavy spam

There was a spam attack in the forum and all offensive accounts along with their posts were removed

As a security measure, local user signup is disabled. New users can still register with Mozilla Persona, GitLab and GitHub oauth methods.

This topic is now a banner. It will appear at the top of every page until it is dismissed by the user.
