Due to repeated problems, we have restricted registration and do not allow most free email services. If your mail service is banned, please try another. Any mail servers found abusing the site or found to be home to problematic users will be added to the banned list. Once you have registered, you may change your email address to any service you like, including free email services such as Gmail and Yahoo.
We currently do not allow users to change their username. Please be selective when creating a name and try to avoid using your real name, initials, or anything offensive. The name you choose will help users recognize you, so ensure that what you pick is acceptable to you.
