Not unexpected...

As expected, people have responded to Filespace's quotas by registering multiple accounts. A few offenders:

Total 85

That's only people with more than two accounts (my arbitrarily-chosen limit). That's also only people with e-mail addresses similar enough that my quick-and-dirty analysis discovered them.

Gomay (Mr. 28 Accounts) has been a problem for a long time. I've now set up his accounts to all give 410 Gone errors, and I'll be deleting his data fairly soon. Not quite sure what to do about the rest.

I maintain that you are far too generous with these ungrateful lusers.

Indeed. Perhaps a tighter account registration system, with approval keys sent to valid email addresses may be in order, or some kind of IP logging trickiness - check new user IP against a list of IPs used to register current accounts, and deny if more than, say, two accounts have been created from that IP.

perl -ne '/(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})@.*OK: NEW USER \(([\w.-]+)\)/ or next;
print "$1 $2\n";' filespace.log | \
perl -ane '$h{$F[0]}++; 
END { print "$_ $h{$_}\n" for sort { $h{$a} <=> $h{$b} } keys %h }' | \
perl -ane '$x=$F[1]-1; END { print "$x\n" }'

You're a better geek than me ^_^

Actually I'm not, because there was a bug in that last one-liner.
brent@navi% perl -ne '
/(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})@.*OK: NEW USER \(([\w.-]+)\)/ or next;
print "$1 $2\n";' filespace.log | \
perl -ane '$h{$F[0]}++; 
END { print "$_ $h{$_}\n" for sort { $h{$a} <=> $h{$b} } keys %h }' | \
perl -ane '$x+=$F[1]-1; END { print "$x\n" }'
In any case, it doesn't look like IP address checking will be very effective.
