    Hi all

    I have blocked users who use AOL email addresses. This means member with an AOL account will not be able to access this website. New members with AOL accounts will not be able to create accounts with their AOL address.

    I've done this because of few reasons:

    1) AOL users always complain about not being able to stay logged into the forum.

    2) They also complain about a number of other minor issues that don’t seem to affect users who use other ISP's.

    3) They generate to much bounced email

    4) I simply don't have the time to deal with this anymore.

    If your using AOL and still want to use this website, your going to have to create an email account with another company and use it.

    All accounts with an AOL email address will be deleted in 10 days.

    Users who use yahoo and hotmail account will be blocked in the next few weeks as they also generate way to much bounced email. These accounts will also be deleted in one month from today.

    Any questions post them here.

    cheers

    No mention of it, but does the deletion of Hotmail also mean you will be removing MSN as well?

    when you say "use" a particular account, do you mean the usenet email? you don't mean the email address attached to the account?

    i'd rather use my hotmail email on my account to get email notifications...

    thx
