This post will be available for viewing by guests and members.

Just a quick note about our registration process.  When you register Rick or Myself send out an email to your registered address with a couple quick questions to try and pick out the bots and anti's.

In the past 2 days we have had over 100 people register and only one was legit.  I must apologize because his name was lost in the barrage of registration emails.  I knew he  wasn't a bot due to the email I received "I haven't heard from anyone...I thought I might  prime the pump.  Y'all gonna accept me or what?"  I appologize to our newest member.

I have had to add some additional bans that might encompass some of the U.S. IP addresses due to the fact that some foreign hosts reroute through a U.S. IP to avoid bans on foreign country hosts.  If you have a problem registering or know of someone who does contact me

I hate to have to add these bans but I am trying to secure our forums from porn for the kids on here and the Viagra and cheap watch ads for the rest of us.

In short if you know or hear of someone having problems registering contact me and I can have them added in just a couple minutes.

I could use a different program, however in order to run a different program that would take up more of my free / family time and someones money.  I have had the offer to buy the program but I think we can continue this way for a while.  It might be a little slower or harder to register but I want to keep it economical for the association and also keep more free time for myself and Rick.

Thanks for understanding,
