Due to 100+ spammers attempting to register here in the last 24 hours, I have temporarily disabled any and all new account registration. Hopefully this can be lifted soon.

It's mostly Russian (and ex-USSR) IPs hitting here, as looked up on http://stopforumspam.com/ .

Update: all pending accounts registered in the past 48 hours have been wiped, rather than sort through 200+. I have banned a few spam-happy email domains from registering, and changed the registration question.

If you legitimately tried to sign up in the past 48 hours, please try again.
