great site. found this years ago, but finally joined. just posting to say thanks, to say 'hello' and yes, i'm not a robot.
This is to put everyone on notice that I personally inspect every email address and user ID to keep spammer off the grumble. This has been going on for about 6 months. There is a chance that a legitimate person get tagged as a spammer by accident. If this has happen my apologizes. You are welcome to change your email address and ID and try again.
To keep your registrations from being bumped consider the following.
1. I look harder at gmail accounts, most spammers use this service.
If I see a email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org that registration it gone.
2. Avoid the use of numbers in your email account or user name.
This is used by robots to log on to sites automatically.
3. Many Chinese isp's are flagged to not allow registrations from their users because of spammers.
4. I must keep a few things to myself to what I look at but I do make mistakes, sorry.
This has greatly reduced online spammers.
I hope you understand the problem and not take a rejection personal.
You just did. Check the forum heading for the topic you want. The main Grumble topic will do for most questions. Either add a post to an existing thread or start a new thread with the post new thread button.I am new to the site and I am unable/unfamiliar to navigate the site. Like, How do I post/ask a question?
