I've tried setting up birdsite accounts a few times, just so I could answer questions from Twitter users about SourceHut.
First they wanted my phone number, which I did not want to give them. I found out today that they stopped requiring this, so I tried to sign up again.
Less than 5 minutes later:
@sir interesting, I created a new account recently and haven't had any such trouble. haven't done much with it though.
@sir Yep, that always happens to me, too.
@sir this happened to me. I contacted their support and they removed the suspension. Apparently it's automatic triggered by registrations from uncommon domain names. Because spam or something. It's quite annoying.
