Email Restrictions
« on: April 17, 2011, 02:46:13 PM »
Due to excessive spam accounts, I have restricted the use of some free email services(during registration). It is unfortunate, but must be done. I am not going to post here which providers do not work, but there are specific ones the spam bots use.

This really shouldn't be an issue for the vast majority. However, if you have a problem and would like to create an account, put a post in this sub-forum (it is unrestricted), and I can take care of things from there.

Thanks,
The Management.

Sal,

I had to disable registration for a while. We were being attacked by spammers. I hope it has blown over, so I just re-enabled registration.

Happy to have you join the site.

As I see it now, if you want to register and you've got a Gmail account you need to post here first. 99% of the spam accounts have been from Gmail email addresses.

Good point. I'd agree. I'm almost at the point of ditching the old database, I can't get it compatible with the new forum software.

I'll be weighing the options.
