I hide the list of all users in Newest Nodes, with Newest Nodes Settings. It's not really worth to display them there imo, as just a new user in itself is not an even I want to check out. If a new user posts a node or talks in the chatterbox, I can notice that directly. If the user writes stuff to his homenode, you're supposed to be able to notice that from Recently Updated Home Nodes, but sadly that node includes all new users, even if they don't touch their homenode. Also, if I really wanted to see a list of recent users, I can always Super Search for them.

Update 2008-06-18: after some nudging, tye has found the problem with the Recently Updated Home Nodes page so now newly created users won't autmatically show up in the list. (Users created before 2008-16-17 are still on the list till they scroll out, we can't fix this retroactively.)

[ambrus]: choroba: that doesn't matter, the cookies are independent on the webserver, they just have to contain your username and crypted password with a seed of the user's choice, you can change the hostname or even construct a cookie without asking the server
[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
