In response to a rash of spammers peddling fake handbags etc. we're being extra vigilant at the moment, so if you find yourself whacked when your intentions were entirely good, please register again under a different name, say hello somewhere, and accept our apologies.  Thank you.

Spam update:

In order to discourage spammers from peddling their wares we've had to make it a little harder to register and post.  That means that in addition to a "visual confirmation" you will need to use a functioning email addy as your confirmation link will be sent there.  In certain cases, your posts may be moderated until we can ascertain that your intentions are pure, at least as far as spamming goes. Other than that . . .

Bienvenue, et s'il vous plaît venez nous rejoindre! (welcome, and join us please!)

Spam update II:

As there doesn't seem to be a way to set the board up so that posts by newly registered members are automatically moderated in any way, meaning that controls have to be laboriously applied to each new or reincarnated spammer, we have reluctantly set the registration to admin-approval,  With apologies, the management.

May I make a suggestion?

I have the same problem.  No one can join my site without  administration activation.  If someone registers, and they have a website or signature with a URL that looks like sales of any kind, that user is deleted.  And it happens a lot.  It's almost a full time job.

Good suggestion Tom, and in fact, that's exactly what I've done.

Question: where do the registration requests go?

They show up as registered in the Member List, and I get notified by e-mail of the new registration.  That e-mail only goes to Administrators.
