As a result of some offensive posts this morning, new members registering in the forum will now require administrative approval before the account is activated and a valid email address.

I regret that this is necessary and I assure you that your privacy will be fully respected as long as you are someone who respects this forum and its members.

I also assure all current and future members that I will not tolerate any behavior in this forum that may offend or cause distress to any members, and that I will continue to take all available measures to report offensive behavior to internet service providers and appropriate government agencies for possible legal action or such other action as may be possible.
