Account creation issue.



Basically, email addresses are blocked. Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, Aol, 10minutemail, ISP-assigned emails, and custom domains all fail, saying that they've been banned.

Could this please be fixed?

Sadly due to spam attacks, we have disabled all 'free' email addresses.

I have contacted Coleslaw via email.

Register with your ISP email and once that has happened, you are able to change it to your 'free' email account.

Just an FYI: It's 2013. Most ISPs don't offer emails any more.

Best way to avoid spam is to have reCAPTCHA or a word problem (something related to the site like "Is Collatz a BOINC project?" would work), and a field marked "Do not fill this in if you are human", hidden from the page by CSS. If the field is filled in or the captcha/problem is incorrect, bam, registration denied.

Making it that insanely difficult for a new member to register really isn't a solution.

Well from on Aussie to another.

Except I don't do forum stuff but I will try and get it changed.

Thanks for fixing this. And to clarify, one of the emails I used was my work email which is not a free email service. So, you were blocking even those.
