The last few months we see more and more new members coming in (be welcomed, and have fun here! 8) ), but unfortunately there is also a growth in SPAM users. Around 90% of them use e-mail accounts originated from Google Mail (GMAIL) and HOTMAIL to have their spambots create new accounts on this forum, so for the moment we have blocked GMAIL and HOTMAIL users to become a new member on http://www.SPfreaks.com and its forums. Existing members with GMAIL and HOTMAIL accounts will not be influenced by this decision, of course!

But… Blocked? No, not entirely… If you still want to become a member here with a GMAIL or HOTMAIL account, and you are a real person with serious intentions, you only have to send an email to the address behind the \"Contact\" button on top. We will then create your account manually for you. Just give us your nick you want to use, the password that you would like to use with the nick, and of course the GMAIL or HOTMAIL e-mail address to be used for the confirmation message from this forum.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it pisses us off big times, deleting 15-20 spam users each day… :evil:
