These are just a few lines to tell you about a recent change of the forum’s login process.
Because some bots have been creating thousands of fake accounts, we don’t allow to register with an email address from Google Mail (aka gmail.com) any more.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but we have tried several other things to stop those bots and cannot be bothered to deal with those spam accounts any more.
The change is not supposed to be permanent. In case you are experienced with SMF and have got an other idea how to block spam, please contact us.
