here is the message i received on another forum

 

Hi!

I'm a lurker over at Flytyingforum.com (I really love your flies btw) and recognized your avatar from here...I just found this forum.

 

I don't know if you'll know this but I'm wondering why/if the flytyingforum.com isn't accepting new members?

I've been trying forever to start a membership over there but I always get an error message (I've tried different browsers and a bunch of other stuff too)....I've emailed the admin a bunch of times and have never heard back.

Just wondering if you happen to know anything about that?

thanks

 

...and thanks for all the amazing inspirational flies!

Michael

If you wish to reply to that person, please tell them we are responding to a recent spam attack.  We had "new members" signing on quicker than we could keep up, and posting long advertisements for Russian brides, drugs, you name it.

Steve (or Steve and Will) shut down new member acceptance for a while, trying to divert that spammer's attention to easier targets.

I have a couple of friends who are great tiers and love swaps from another board wanting in. They are in Christmas swap since I could enter their names without them registering but hope ban is lifted soon to let them in. We need some fresh swappers and ideas on here from time to time. 

 

TIER, the answer to that is Caller ID. Don't know the number don't answer anymore. If it's a call I should take they can leave a message and I'll get back.
