Default a friend of mine can't register - help please

Buddy of mine just bought a 1995 SS, and he has tried several times to register on here as a new user name "Flip" (which is available) but he keeps getting this message:

"Registration denied, this forum runs an active policy of not allowing spammers. Please contact us via the "Contact Us" page link if you believe this is in error"


he tried 3 times to "contact us" also, unsuccessfully.


he uses Gmail, but also tried to register with his yahoo account. What the hell is wrong with this forum? He tried from his computer, his work, his phone... ever think this might deter, or completely turn off LOTS of new members?

how about someone who runs the forum check this section out?


look at this post, and give me or him an answer on this subject. He has never been on the forum, nobody at his IP has ever even logged into this forum, his user name he is trying to use is "Flip" and he even tried different variations of that name, even though the forum said "name available". Tried from his house, work, phone, my house, and my phone. NONE work.


Glad to see the new forum ownership is making such great changes, and is quick to answer to problems.

Remember this is the weekend, and this is a free forum, so we can't expect the admins to drop everything just to assist with a registration.

My guess would be he either entered the security spam code incorrectly, or there is a forum glitch.

Free forum? LOL. I see a crapload of paid memberships. and this isnt just a weekend thing, this has been going on for several days.



we tried contacting the admin several times, I even reported this post, hoping it would get attention sooner. but I guess i'll try the PM route next. Thanks goldy.

I don't know who you are, nor did I know your screen name until I was informed of this by goldmaster. I knew who Hack was, and would have PMd him had he still owned the forum. I've been on here for 10 years... But I don't get on here much any more due to the abundance of advertisements, and the quality and character of the majority of the members.


And thanks for the "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA" condescending reply as well.
