Description

I can't register at the board because "I am flagged as a spammer". Well, I am not. I am human and I have never used or tried to use the board before.

What IP are you trying to register from, and what email domain?

I guess I would appreciate if you didn't publicise these details. Seems unnecessary?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by John Clay

I checked the IP given, as well as the username and email. Nothing is showing as banned or limited. Can you try again, and post a screenshot of the error?

Ah, OK. The registration is being blocked because your email was used to post spam on websites in the past. You can search through the history here, using your email or IP.

I don't understand? I have had this e-mail address for ten years (I worked at Google at the time I registered it) and have no connection what so ever to the messages or IP-addresses listed for my e-mailaddress on that page. Neither has my account been hacked or me tricked into confirming my address or similar for the spam listed there. Why am I blocked?

It's likely that your account was hacked. I'd suggest changing your password.

I've manually created you an account, and you should receive the details shortly.

I doubt that. I have a very complex password and it is my secondary account that just forwards to another, that is I never login to it. Besides, I have no other indication that is has been hacked.
