Code for WordPress MU Administration confirmed username before the blogger is able to start blogging.
Since at some point spammers will find your site and create splogs, there’s many ways to stop them. Deleting them as they occur is like shovelling snow during a blizzard. You can add another field to signup, add a captcha, go invite-only, or in the case of my main niche blogging site – moderate the signups. This works well for smaller signups where you don’t get a huge number of new bloggers on a daily basis, and where spammers have proven to be a general nusiance, a potential embarrasement, as well as a time suck.
