It looks like has been hit with bot user creation. I'm not sure exactly what the parameters are of the user registration page for the site, since it's hooked into other things like open_id.

However, I have disabled a couple hundred users listed in I ran the following command from web root:

drush ublk --mail=$(cat ~/mfpl-suexec-failed-user-registration.txt)

I've also enabled captcha on the user registration form, which hopefully will limit the number of bot registrations. We need to determine a mechanism for cleaning up these errant registrations. There are currently 24,000+ users in the user table.
