Sure :) Fake requests meaning requests that do not appear to be from
users who need bridges to access the Tor network.
The way we currently do it is by keeping a blacklist of known-spammy
email addresses. When we receive a request for bridges we compare the
source email address against the email addresses in the blacklist. If
they are identical or very similar then we probably deny the
request. See the ticket for some more details.
