Hi gang....a few months ago I had posted up in regards to my frustrations with members recreating new accounts under these free email hosted sites only to cause 'flame wars', etc.

So, I had spent a few days rounding up these free email hosted accounts and banning them from registering on my site in order to minimize the amount of bogus accounts. This has been forcing my members to register with their ISPs email account. Making it easier for me to contact them in case there is an issue with their account or the site, and helps minimize the amount of fake accounts (so to speak).

If any of you are interested in doing the same or wish to share with me your list of the same....please post back a response here or email me personally at: [][email protected][/]

Thanks gang,
Gonzo
