Updated: 04FEB09

We have reverted back to our normal instant sign-up process for new User Registrations. Once again only automatic email verification/activation is required.

Our Forum is still being bombarded with scam/spam attempts, but these are being blocked by restricting access to our Forum to only New Zealand and Australian IP addresses. Unfortunately this will also block any genuine international users. However, our Forum was setup for GLBT residents of New Zealand - and we do allow our Aussie Mates to communicate with us. The alternative is to be spammed.

If you know or hear of anyone in NZ or OZ who cannot access our Forum and they are getting an "Access Denied" message, please ask them to use our normal "Contact Form" to report this and to include their IP address.

IP addresses (or a sequence of addresses) are continually being added/allocated to expanding networks and we will need to update our "allow/deny" list from time to time to accommodate these new addresses.   

Cheers, Neil
