This caused us to send bad email responses (which appeared to the rest of the world as spam).
We will be working to correct this problem as soon as we can, either by tightening up the join process to avoid the current issue, or by switching to newer (perhaps hosted) forum software. If you have any suggestions for a threaded and easy-to-administer forum system, please contact the webmaster.
Please use the normal support methods if you need help.
We apologize for any inconvenience!
