|We spend our days deleting SPAMMERS from our (and your...) board. On the basis of the information available to us we make a judgement whether a new member is legitimate.... or not. If the verdict is 'not' the new member is deleted.
Dead giveaways are links to pr0n sites, to insurance sellers or to..... Another indication is whether a new member activates his account or not. Many spammers use fake e-mail addresses. They can register but can't activate.
In the process we've made a few mistakes. Some deleted alleged spammers took the trouble to contact (one of) us so we could set things straight. In other cases the new members were lost (forever?), which is a pity.
So if you're a new member, please activate your account soon after registereing and make a post in our 'New and departing members' forum. That's the best way you won't be mistaken for a spammer....
Thanks for your cooperation.
And .... if you've been accidentally removed, please accept our apologies, mail us and we'll help you to get in!
