1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.

  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

  6. To the many new members following Mr Zoat to our forum, I would suggest a quick read of our Rules. Don't worry, it's not a long post. Pay special attention to Rule 8. We are deadly serious about it.

  7. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

  8. To make things official, I have added a proper description of the method to appeal a moderator action in the Rules thread.

    How strongly does rule 7 apply in the rants section? Particularly something like Bitching About General Fiction? I’d rather not get in trouble for raising a dormant rant post if it’s not allowed

    Generally, if you're posting a topical rant, it's not against the rule.
