Hey!I think it would be really useful if it was possible to enable a CAPTCHA (eg. reCAPTCHA) the user would have to solve before being able to register a new account as it would make it much harder to write a bot which spams the forum with trash accounts. I know it is already possible to enable e-Mail verification but it is easy to bypass if you own a mail server or use a trash mail API.

The new(ish) Google reCAPTCHA v2 could be a good one. Simple tick box, not too taxing on the brain for people or likely to turn them away.
As this would be a 3rd party services we would have to rely on, it won't be included in-core.
