View Full Version : Member wishing access

This site is worse than fort knox. Never seen such a stringent forum and I am a member of many :) Why such a strict protocol? I just want to sign up to post, but I need to be vetted for something.

Surely the original sign up protocol would filter 99% robots.

Anyway, Im dont mean to sound rude; im just playing devils advocate

Kind regards,

Hi David,

We find we get an awful lot of spammers, bots (and a few weirdos!) so we have to keep a tight reign on things. Add to that the fact that we are only volunteers with jobs of our own and I'm sure you can imagine time is pretty tight. There's only a very small bunch of us checking the new registrations (often just little me :p) so it does sometimes takes a while if I'm busy with other 'life' things. If you'd like to tell me what username you are trying to sign up with I will look into it for you.
