At least once a day I check this Forum (and a number of other Forums) to examine the applications for new registration, and invariably I come across between five and thirty SPAMmers (yes, every single day, on every single Board) trying to get on to strew their porn and garbage at your feet.
On occasion one may get through registration, but after examining the registrations I then also examine the latest posts, so I delete offending posts too (and then the offending SPAMmer), so there is a fairly effective cleansing process in effect.
There used to be open registration here... but the hordes of SPAMmers and tons of garbage put an end to that, and I make every effort to block it.
This means that, on occasion, one of your registration attempts which is legitimate may be deleted (never AFTER being approved), and if that happens I would like you to be able to contact me directly.
If your initial attempt to register has been deleted, please go to the following web page and send me an email, stating the user name you are trying to register, and then make another attempt to register. This way I will know beforehand what legitimate user name to look for and approve.
There may be a delay of (at most) 24 hours before I get to the registration, but I will get to it.
My apologies for any inconveniences caused... and thank you in advance for your patience.
