Unmoderated Registration Backby noid
Things seemed to have settled here at the site, and there are less, if at all, spammers registering. I have restored the registration process to its original settings and I won't be approving registration anymore -- you will receive in the e-mail address you used to register the welcome message with the validation link, and once you click the validation link, you will gain authenticated status and will be able to post.
At any rate, if the spammers return, we have already assigned moderators (anonymous per their request) to delete the spammers' accounts and posts.
Those who have recently registered by the way -- while there was moderated registration -- please verify if you can already log into your accounts because I have validated all of your new accounts. If you still can't log in, let me know at filipinowriter (at) gmail (dot) com.
