First off - thanks for a great forum with some truly dedicated member to the cause.
But, is validation necessary for this forum? I tried to register towards the end of last year and gave up after nothing seemed to happen for weeks.
From the members list it looks like over 200 members are patiently waiting to be validated.
I assume no background check or character reference is sort to weed out the spammers so what is the point? Surely there are more efficient ways to stop accounts been generated automatically.
Apart from that, great site guys. Lets hope we don't lose too many fresh members due to validation issues.
