6186 fake accounts, added a captcha and some more logging

Someone set up a script to register accounts, and in total there seems to be about 6186 of them.

Unfortunately, I can’t see which usernames were registered since I didn’t log that part (it’s part of the post data, and the users didn’t keep track on when and by whom they got registered) , I just see that the registration page returned “yep” for 6186 non-referred calls from a small handful of ip numbers.

So now I’ve added a captcha to the registration page and made the user objects keep track of much more data, including last-login.

I will delete inactive free accounts at the alpha/beta switchover.
