REGISTRATION

 
No new posts Admin Approval...

Due to the significant amount of spam, offensive and otherwise, the board has been configured so that admin has to approve all registrations. It is unfortunate that it had to come to this but we really do not need to see such offensive postings when we have so much other "stuff" to deal with. I am sorry for the inconvenience. Just register and input your info and I will screen the registration and approve once I have determined that the registration is legitimate. If approved, you should be able to access the forum within 24 hours. Check back within that timeframe. PLEASE NOTE: Registrations from free email accounts are not acceptable due to the amount of spammers that try to register from those accounts. Please register with your paid email account. Thank you for understanding.
