User Registrations Disabled

The Poetry Pages has been receiving over 20 "spam" registrations per day since the beginning of the year. I am personally tired of individually checking IP addresses and deleting them. Therefore, for the moment, new registrations to the Pages are disabled. I will post an email address for anyone seriously wishing to register as a new member.

I'm hoping the spammer(s) will get tired after a bit and I can re-open registration. Thanks for your support!

The servers are mainly in China, Russian Confederacy, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indoniesia. Sometimes they get a proxy server in the US and I give them a try, provided their user name makes sense and so does the email address.

And if all else fails, I lock and load and go hunting. And if I'm having a real bad day, I go Wolverine on their butts. :twisted: :twisted:
