How can I control who can register for my askbot? (i.e. only users with a @example.com email address, or must be admin approved)
EDIT: Found a solution and posted it below. Marked as best/correct answer.
Because we're using Google Apps and therefore have @mycompany.com emails, I just modified the
django_authopenid backend to force it to a Google Apps login.
www.google.com/08/id (or something) in util.py to
www.google.com/o8/site-xrds?hd=mycompany.com and an openid patch from that adieu posted up.
After that, I just disabled all other logins (only allowing a Google login), and only allowed registered users to view site.

You can limit the logins available through /settings/LOGIN_PROVIDERS/, eg if you only want Facebook logins or Yahoo logins, then enable those and disable all others.
However, I don't believe that Askbot offers any user moderation-before-view, only post moderation, and there is no admin controlled filter that can be applied to user registration email addresses (ie Only Allow: *@MyCompany.com, Block: *@dodgywarez.com)
Both of these things would be a feature request. (Unless someone with more knowledge proves me wrong...!)
