Default Registration requirements change!

As a result of the porn bot that posted some offending material on the site, I have tightened the email requirements for users registering on the board. Specifically, users will not be allowed to use a hotmail account as they are the number one email provider for spam and ill intent. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause, but I have deemed it to be necessary to keep offensive materials from the site. We have many spouses and kids on the site and therefore, such material must be kept from the site to preserve the family oriented nature of the site.

There are other things that I can do to prevent the auomated registration of users, but this will further lengthen the time it takes to register and I would like to see how this method fares first.

Please understand and accept the necessity of these actions.


Thanks,

Well, since I have hotmail and am still able to come onto the site, I am assuming that this will not affect users who are already registered under a hotmail account?:

That is correct. All those from here on out will not be able to use hotmail as their email address.

I agree completely

I am in full support of tightening the registration requirements. In view of last weekend's attack and the fact that most of us have family viewing with us I think this is the prudent thing to do here.

Bill
