To quote Dylan:

The spammers are using automatic software called bots to get passed the registration authentication. I have some upgrades to do to but was waiting for some spare hours I need to do the modification and testing afterwards. Hopefully later today. This is becoming quite the headache for me and must be very discouraging for all.

I decided to disable new registrations self authenticate method for registrations until the new code has been tested more before I install it. For now, people who wish to register will get a message to email register@macca-central.com.
