    FYI: Spam-O-Matic may be overzealous...

    When I originally tried to register for this forum I was rejected by the Spam-O-Matic
    as a spammer.........................? I was using my main gmail email
    account I've had for seven years on a standard suburban Comcast IP -
    nothing fishy. I didn't know it blocked the IP so I was subsequently blocked
    on two other email accounts.

    It's worth noting that after being blocked, I started receiving a flood of spam
    to these email accounts..

    I finally got registered using another IP and new Yahoo email.
    I tried contacting the admin, but never received any response.

    Just to let you all know.

    Sorry to hear about that. Spam-O-Matic is a new feature to me, one that I'm so far pretty unfamiliar with but I'm researching it now. I don't know what might have caused it to key in on your registration attempt and reject you, I'll try to find out. I'm not an admin, only a moderator (that's probably a good thing!) so my abilities are somewhat limited.

    And in spite of all that you had to go through to get here, welcome to the site!
