We are well and truly inundated with sad individuals with nothing better to do than sign up and start trolling, flaming and so on.

I have got better things to do to be honest - and so have the other moderators.

I have disabled 'user registration' until further notice.

Good move IMHO, people on here have had their emotions rubbed raw, without yo-yos coming on & flaming them. Just a quickie, if you don't object, what has a GOM's opinion and a piece of string got in common?

Every yo-yo wants one.

Got a new MOD installed... should stop the porn spammers.

Any humans who come on here to post spam, flame bait etc will just get banned. I have even less time to wipe your noses now, and I refuse to cause legit users to wait for days while I pour through the user registration details.

Any of the old school 'othersiders' who continue to go over old ground or post offensive messages will also be banned.

Anyway else - welcome! :handshake:

Well - we have had only spam members signing up for the past 2 weeks, so going back to Admin only authentication of new accounts..

If you are genuinely wanting to become a member - in addition to signing up - drop me a mail and I will sort you out.
