    We are under some kind of spam attack that requires we have no automated checking systems. It looks like they got AI or a bunch of 3rd world country people signing up for websites and scripting it. I have blocked everything and I am actively monitoring the situation and am close to banning entire countries like Iran and India. I ban whole IP blocks - I am agressive on spam and I might have blocked you but if I did you would not be reading this except by proxy. I am sorry but it is necessary to keep the forum running. You can always send me an email at thehelper@thehelper.net to get a manual approval on your registration if you are a real person.

    I have blacklisted many entire asian countries but we still get a couple of spams every day but nothing that is not manageable thank god. I do not know how we ever had open registration.
