Now if you still get a general error when you hit submit. It’s the control image. You may think you typed it right but you didn't. They are security images to keep computer bots out of the forum. So just hit the back button and reload the page. So you get a new control / security image.

Some spam filters will catch your activation email and junk it. So if you do not receive an email with the account activation link in it check your junk mail file.

The EarthLink, AOL, NetScape spam softwares will probably grab these emails.

Also use a real email address from a trusted site.

If your using free email from russia your not gonna get in. If you have anything even slightly obscene in your email forget it too.

Some guy on the email list wants to know why all his post are moderated when his email address has hardnipples in it. DUH YA YEA

Right now I only approve about a 1/3 of the member request we get from bad email addresses.

----
Q:Why are russian email sites banned?
A:99% of the folks who come here and post porn spam use them.


-------------------------

we also check the email address and site to see if its real.

If ya sign up with one like this

yanno@hfslink.cm [put o in com]

Might look legit at face value but one of us will check by going to hfslink.cm [put o in com]

And all that loads is some spam search portal selling drugs. You ain't getting in.

----------------------

We also check usernames on Google

spammers like the use the same stuff over n over again.

Case in point

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=TommyBoiZZXX&btnG=Google+Search

Dude has signed up for about 12 forums in less then 24hrs with no post.

Classic spammers pattern.
