Registration of new members
« on: August 23, 2011, 12:49:13 AM »

I finally gave up. We are receiving a tsunami of registration attempts by spammers. So I have blocked registration.  To become a member you need to send me an email mentioning what this board is about and I will manually register you. It's also a good idea that you tell me what user name you want. Send the email to:



I'll try to find a better solution.

The amount of effort put into trying to screw up the internet is just plain depressing!  Sorry you are having to put up with all this!

It’s pretty sad!
I did notice one got in, briefly, this Sunday evening.
ta0, Thanks for trying so hard and being so successful in fending these off!

To register you had to reproduce one camouflaged word. I believe the spammers are not bots but spammer farms. I can put more hoops for them to go through and also automatically filter using an online database of spammers, but right now I want to take break from wasting time with them.  I may implement something like that in the future.
