Easy:
Kill the missus, get rid of the Xantia's, have 500 BX's.
Jobbed!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I believe that they (in their wisdom) decided to ban all web based email as an anti-spam strategy. :wink: So unless you have a subscription account you will be "bounced". :shock:

Yes, I can tell you really easy.

You have a Yahoo.co.uk e-mail address which as part of anti spamming measures has had to be banned.
It doesn't matter what comes before the "Yahoo" bit, it's not allowed.
Why is it not allowed? Well, as Administrator, I get the job of deleting all the spammers as they register so I have the time factor to consider.
Many spammers use phoney e-mail addresses whilst the so called shrewd ones use Yahoo, Hotmail and the like, the reason being that they are untraceable.
Presently, as you are aware, these forums, FCF and this one can take a long time to load and at times my internet service can be as low as 55 kbps and is rarely above 1000 so I have to wait several minutes, including denial of access and timing out, to get to each one to delete.
The other day, I had reason not to be on for some time and I had 55 of these scumbags to get rid of, now whilst to someone sitting on the sideline it might seem to be a ridiculous situation, want to swap jobs doing these deletions or would it just be simpler to send me a fresh e-mail address and I'll include it in your profile and all is fixed?

By the time you're old enough to know it all, you can't remember why you were learning.

FWIW, it's no easier for me than it is for you, so send your info on a PM here IF you want it fixing.
If you just want to whinge then don't; simple as that.
At present I am in an area that has been flattened by storms and we have only had power (electricity) for around 10 hours over the past 3 days, so for me to get access, I firstly have to be on the air and secondly be on the air when the server decides it wants me to be on there, so it is a lot of trouble for me to do as it could take me a day or more of trying, so I'm prepared to go to a lot of trouble if you'll go to a little.
At present I don't even know what your log in name is on FCF so I can do absolutely nothing until you get me all the necessary information.
No skin off my nose if you want to refuse the offer.
