Note to newbies: registering for the site
Because of problems again with junk subscriptions (people trying to advertise commercial websites or links which could carry viruses) I am unfortunately going to have to require Admin approval to Ok your registration when you first sign up. This is only a minor administrative issue and means that while you will be immediately able to read all site content, you will need to wait til I OK your subscription before you can set up your user profile and post.
Sorry about that but the spam problem is an ongoing annoyance, and I dont want to risk anyone possibly getting exposed to viruses because of these people.
This doesn't affect existing members, as your accounts are already enabled! I just don't want anyone new to feel they are being deliberately blocked when they first sign up.
