    Default How come it takes so long to approve my account so I can post?

    We manually review all new accounts before they're allowed to post- this is to stop the site being swamped by spammers trying to flog you cigarettes, pornography and fake Air Jordans.

    As an example- over the last few days I've had 122 requests for Boards accounts- only 1 was from an actual Australian.

    Please be patient- we're pretty good at keeping the board free of spam, and the new account review is part of that process.

    So that's how we roll now, is it? No wonder Cesar and Mama B don't post here so much any more.

    If I could IP-block the entire *.ru, *.ua and *.cn domains I would. It would save me heaps of time.

    Actually, *.info as well.
