What if you implemented a system whereby it automatically locks you out after signing up for a certain number of accounts (possibly a relatively low number) within a certain period of time, but that you have the option of requesting a special invite code that would permit you to do another bunch.
This would allow people who are registering a tonne of them for a particular project to just let you know what they want it for, and get clearance, but doesn't prevent people from slowly accumulating lots of accounts over a long period of time.
And people who consistently request a lot of them but then squat could be redflagged as people who are probably squatting.
I also wonder if there's any way to redflag a transfer of a username automatically, in order to catch people who are username trading? Probably it would be tied to a change of email, which probably happens a lot more than it would be feasible to investigate, but I just thought I'd ask.
