In an effort to ensure spammers don't move in and make themselves at home here, we keep all new registrants to The Write Idea behind a locked door. Once they've been frisked and their credentials given a once over, new users are either activated or deleted.

In the case of proven spammers, their ISPs, email & web addresses are added to a banned list. (I have found lots of ways to positively identify spammers.)

But the current system is not foolproof and it's possible that the administrators will occasionally make a mistake. If a welcoming hello posted to a newly activated member hasn't been responded to publicly by said member within two weeks, their username will be deleted from TWI.

I'm just sayin'. Cool

hi Donna,

agree entirely, but I have been frozen out of TWI because you picked up on an old mail address. I love this site and have finally managed to get back on.
Thankfully yours,

mike noakes

Glad you were able to get back in, Mike!

Just a reminder to all members ... please make sure the email address you have listed in your profile is currently active. Otherwise, you won't receive topic reply notifications (if you've chosen that option), emails alerting you to PMs or any other important stuff from the TWI admins.

And if you ever forget your log-in password and have to click on "I forgot my password", the new password is sent to the email address in your profile. If that address isn't valid, you won't get your new password.
