Why am I called SPAM when I try to register (and other registering info)?

Erica McPhee:
If you are trying to register for our forum and you receive a message which says, "The user... is a SPAM", please don't take it personal.

The number one reason people receive this message is because they do not delete the characters from the box which says, "This box must be left blank."

The box does not show up for every person. If it does, delete the characters before submitting.

If you have trouble answering any questions, please contact me via the contact form and I will be happy to send you the answers. Or if you are having trouble registering altogether and fed up, please contact me and I will be happy to register you myself!

Many people do not realize that we constantly receive SPAM, bot, and malicious attacks on our forum every day - sometimes thousands per day. While I know the registration process is cumbersome, it is a necessary measure to keep our forum as safe as possible. It is in NO WAY meant to deter anyone from joining.

Please watch this video for help in trying to register:

Recently, each time I log in, which is almost daily, I am refused the first time (but not as spam) and accepted the second. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Erica McPhee:
HmmmÖ that is interesting @Gary  and the first time I have heard this. Try clearing your cache and seeing if that helps.

Thank you Erica.
I have cleared the cache and I think it has solved the issue. If it reappears, I will let you know.
Thank you too for a wonderful forum.
Best regards

Iím relieved to hear it helped @Gary ! Please do let me know if it happens again.  :)
