Description

Can we please disable mandatory two-factor authentication in this tracker? Offering 2fa is great, but being mandatory is not. For my part I find it completely overblown and superfluous for a site such as this. (And if it's mandatory why is there even a "Disable" link in my account settings?)

Unfortunately, I have no plan to disable it.

We are always attacked by spammers and crackers. I have no idea to prevent our place from them.

Oh I see. I thought 2FA was for protecting our accounts, but instead it's to increase barrier to entry for bots (but also for humans). Not sure I agree, but I understand your pain.
