I apologize to any legitimate Russian patrons, but I've been banning Russian spambots 2-3 times per week, despite the captcha. So, sorry :(

Added *@mail.ru to the bans. Seen several spammers using that, and I figure as long as we're banning Russia...
(Actually considered firing that one off for a while, but couldn't speak enough russian to prove if it was actually a legitimate russian mail site)


Pity we can't blast google mail and hotmail and yahoo mail and all those other free e-mail services in this day and age. It used to be so effective.

APPRIVOISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Probably because of the shady nature of this hobby, I'd guess not as many people want to use non-free, personally identifiable email services to register.

Naw, it's just how people use the internet these days.
An ISP-supplied e-mail box isn't the normal standard way of doing things anymore.
Webmail is as hellishly abusable by spammers, trolls, and other wretched scum as it was at the turn of the century, but ... everyone uses it for their LEGIT e-mail accounts too.

APPRIVOISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
