We have recently had a few attempts for new users to register for the forums whilst using a VPN service. In light of the UK ISP Internet Snooping act we fully understand why so many people may wish to use VPN services.
However the downside to using one of the many free/cheaper services is that it is possible to be allocated an IP that has in the past been used by spammers. We have several anti-spam measures in place, one of which is if your VPN IP is on the spam database, then application to register will automatically be rejected without further notification.
Whilst we respect your wish for anonymity, please also respect that we are a family friendly community and have zero tolerance towards bots and spammers. This makes a better and much nicer environment for our existing members.
If you are using a VPN and are having difficulty registering, it is highly likely that your allocated IP is one of those previously used by known spammers. We suggest that you temporary turn off your VPN just whilst completing the registration form.
