HAVING PROBLEMS REGISTERING?

Postby JohnW » Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:05 am

Because this forum has been targetted by many spammers, the settings have been changed so that a username has to be approved before the registration is approved. I manage this process. The problem is that the only way I can judge whether your application is genuine, is by deciding whether the username looks genuine.

So if you are genuine, but your registration has not proceeded, it probably means that I was not convinced by your username. If you are unlucky enough to try to register on a day when I am seeing a number of spurious applications, it is even more likely that I have made a mistake. So if this appears to have happened, send me an email at recov2000ATgmailDTcom and see if that approach convinces me of your genuineness.

I regret that this process has become necessary, and I apologise for any frustration that it causes.

Well done John. This should finally stop the spammers and let the genuine paruresis chat people join.

Great work, not sure how these robots work, certainly they are attracted to certain things (eg the thread on penis size - seems to attract advertisers for anything penile to selling libido boosting drugs like viagra) by search engines.
They often use nonsensical names, or sometimes try to fool with a real name - both first and last name - very brazen for an AP'er and a red flag!
NO paruretic would ever do that - as most paruretics are initially mortified at anyone finding out their name, having usually kept such a deep dark secret for decades.

There are now so many applications coming each day (sometimes up to 100, presumably machine-generated), that I cannot possibly open each one and try to decide if it looks genuine.
The only way forward is for you to make your registration application and then immediately email me ( recov2000AThotmailDOTcom ) to tell me that you have done so. You should also tell me what username you have indicated. This will enable me to find your application fairly easily and approve it. If you don't get clearance, it may simply mean that I am away for a few days, in which case I may need to email you and ask you to try again with the same procedure.
