    A captcha requirement would reduce it a lot, 

The problem is not so much that they are succeeding in their
subscriptions, but that there is such a flood that merely executing the
python to load the page slows the system to a crawl.  Thus the sysadmins
are working on cutting them off at the apache level, or similar.  The
requests come from thousands of ip addresses so it's not feasible to
block that way.

Anyway, address@hidden is the place to send suggestions ...
