    Well, as another new "probie" who gets tons of spam email each day, I think this is the only fair and reasonable way to stop the spammers.

    Besides, I've come here to enjoy myself, so I'm off to do some exploring, and find my way around the boards.

    For those who wonder if the "Probie" status is required, a glance at the Spamomatic Statistics at the bottom of the forum front page proves it's use.

    As of today there have been 57570 Spammers denied registration since March 2011. And these are just the ones the system catches. There are always a few that slip through the net, and the Probie status gives the mods the chance to catch them.

    This is another good reason to be more active to me here

    It confuses a bit but since I have been reading this posts before I clicked to sign up, so I knew it would be like that.
    I enjoy being here already, being a "Probie" does not spoil the fun at all, at least in my opinion

    I guess it makes sense to have these kinds of rules, although I thought it was a lil sad I couldn't post a pic for my profile right off.
