the number of bogus account requests right now has become a little crazy. it's easily 25 to 1 bogus vs real. most requests are from eastern europe, and appear to be from a botnet of some sort. I have already blocked these new accounts from posting until they get manually approved, but just reviewing them all has become a real time suck at this point. so I'm turning off the board's "sign up" functionality.if you are a human being and have any interest at all in Waterford Hills, we do want you here!
I will gladly create accounts for anyone meeting those simple criteria. just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with your preferred username, and give me some idea of why you want an account. I don't need any lengthy justifications -- just show me that you aren't part of a botnet...
sorry for the additional hassle.
