We are under attack by hundreds of spammers these last few days.

Thanks to apps that can create thousands of different nicks, e-mail addies and IP addies, one (or more) spammer(s) have flooded our validating list with bogus registrations.

And thanks to our manual registration system they can't get through, but they make the validation procedure quite cumbersome.

I mean we could just delete all of every day's validating members, but there might be some legit users among them. And it's really difficult to send 500 validation e-mails every day, so please bear with us.

So far, we have deleted over 1,500 spammers, checking each addy and finding out whether it's spam or not.

To all legit validating members: Please avoid using e-mail addies like mail.ru, yandex.ru or yandex.com and outlook.com. You can also use the shoutbox to contact us. And please, be patient. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but it's not of our doing.
