We have been going through and deleting some user accounts that appear to have been created by spambots. We deleted accounts that were from .info, .biz, and certain other domains, or accounts with names that had things like "XXX" or "nastypimp" or other similar terms. We also deleted accounts more than a month old that were never activated and many older accounts that had no posts. If your account was one of those and you now wish to post, I apologize. You may create your account again.
We have made some registration changes and will be making more soon to help prevent spambot registrations. Email addresses from domains such as .biz and .info and several others will no longer be allowed. There are may free email services, such as Gmail, that you may use to register.
Here's to hoping that the board becomes a safer, virtually spam-free place!
