To those people who may have tried to register and have been advised that new registrations are not being accepted - my apologies. Sadly the few genuine applicants are having to suffer for the actions of fools and trolls.

I just got tired of spending a couple of hours, or more, each day checking out and ultimately deleting/banning the hundreds of new users trying to post spam and links to pornography that were appearing each day. Later I may reactivate 'New Registrations' and see how it goes for a while. If it is as bad as before then registration will be switched off again and I shall leave it up to Eric to decide what to do in the long term.
