UPDATE - Jan. 29, 2012: We've implemented a new registration measure so this will no longer be necessary, although we may add it back later if the situation warrants it.
If your registration was inadvertently rejected during previous anti-spambot sweeps, our apologies. Please try registering again.
If you have the "@TMW" prefix and would like to have it removed, just send the admins a PM.
Spam registrations have always been a problem. These registrations are done automatically and serve either to boost search engine rankings, sell fake pharmaceuticals or distribute malware, among other purposes and they are getting more frequent. If you wish to register, we request that you add the suffix "@TMW" at the end of your member name.
For example, if you want to register under the name:
please use the member name:
instead. This will serve to differentiate your member name from those initiated by automated scripts.
If you find that your membership request has not been approved or was deleted, it is likely that we were unsure of your registration and took the cautious approach. Do not be offended. You can try registering again following the pattern above.
We will still check for signs, of course (there are actually paid human SEO spammers), but this way we can limit our checking to a smaller number.
Thank you for your cooperation.
