NOTICE TO ALL NEW USERS!!!!!
« on: December 17, 2014, 06:21:31 PM »
New users...PLEASE READ and adhere to policy!!!
Due to an unprecedented attack by spammers and bots, I am being EXTREMELY picky about who I approve for new membership to the forum. One of the steps you may have noticed is that you were sent an activation email, which you must activate before your registration is confirmed.
Now, here is the important part; I have reason to believe a few may have slipped in "under the radar", so I will ask you to do this additional task; stop by the thread called "WELCOME WAGON" and give us a short intro. Doesn't have to be a book, but enough to let us know the newly registered members are real, live people.
Here is an active link to the thread:

http://blackpowdersmoke.com/colt/index.php/board,10.0.html

Newly registered users who fail to post an intro may have their accounts deleted upon administrative discretion.

Thanks for your cooperation!

It's sad we have to make registering new members more difficult,  but it is necessary.   I hope it doesn't get to the point that even more restrictions are required.

Sucks when it comes down to this. I think this sort of activity should carry a very heavy sentence and loss of internet privilege for life. We are just a forum...think about the trillions of dollars businesses lose from this bullshit! *k)

Jax, is your forum under Smokey's umbrella?

NEW NOTICE FROM ADMIN! ALL LURKERS PLEASE READ!
All new members with goofy screen names (e.g. Trafkligaxl) will be summarily rejected due to increased spambot activity. While your screen name doesn't necessarily have to be black powder related, it should make sense, at least. Also, email addresses are being very closely monitored as well. Please don't list your email as XXX@homeshoppingnetwork.com or you will be bounced.
