Starting tomorrow we will no longer be insisting on domain/ISP/employment e-mail addresses from new registrants for the following reasons:

1) Too many people these days rely on cell phones as their sole internet access.

2) I spend, at a minimum, 1 hour a day, dealing with these people and trying aid them in compliance. I just don't have extra hours for this anymore. And some days its several hours.

I initially created this policy to help protect members from being ripped off by kooks, but even this policy would not net them all—we must all be vigilant in watching out for ourselves and bros.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

I am no techie but I would think the time babysitting a bunch of booger eating, noobs would be far more time consuming than putting up with the regulars.

Also, would this allow all the ethered misfit toys to come back?

Which by the way may be good entertainment

I'm sure they'll try, but failure is in their fortune. I few will sneak past, but they'll be caught—they always give themselves away.

What it means is if some nube rips one of you off, it will be harder for me to trace them and track them down.

I've already blocked all the temporary 15 minute e-mail providers I could find so that should help.

There were a lot that only have cell phones and thus could not meet the requirements for their account to be activated.

Ha! Everyone here was a nube kook at some point by your own logic. Including you.

youre still blocking freemail registrations, arent you?

ie: hotmail, yahoomail, gmail, etc?

i never buy anything off anyone that doesnt have a 'real' email address.
