The Admin has banned your email address

    My wife was trying to create an account here so she could flame me in public. Not really, but she wants to know who these people that I talk about are. When she tried to sign up she got a message that the admin has banned her email address. The funny thing is that she was using her Myway account and when she clicked on contact admin it was going to ethics(at)myway(dot)kham. Any ideas?

    Ethics is the admin so the email going to ethics@myway.com sounds correct.

    Why the new member email addy shows banned is something I'm sure Ethics will address as soon as he gets the email.

    Was this a free e-mail address she was trying to use or one that her ISP gave her?

    My bad, Wapu.

    I was playing with some settings last night and forgot to turn this one off. I apologize to you and your wife. Ask her to try it in five minutes of this post. .

    I'm pretty sure that ethics' email will be filled with spam if these text email addy's arent' disguised .

    Good point, Sharon - there are so many harvesters out there. A simple edit of the post, even adding "nospam" to the addy, can make all the difference in the world. Example, " ethics@nospam.myway.com (remove "nospam." to contact)" would prevent the automation grabbing the addy while keeping the address known to those needing it...

    Cool, she is Joining right now. Watch out though, her views are a little different than mine.;)

    Yeh, I see her now...

    Not sure. She is reading the posts and thinks that we are not funny enough. She has never dealt with serious isuues online and I think that she is nerveous. Once she gets that first post out of the way I am sure she will be fine.

    Hotmail, yahoo, and several other organizations that specialize in throw away spam accounts are banned from being used here.

    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    That is only because these old farts take themselves a little to seriously. I am sure she will find something somewhere to her liking... That or this will just confirm that you are as odd as she thought you are.
