Yes, registration here is a pain in the butt, largely because I've been getting a huge amount of automated comment spam, even though none of it ever goes live, as it's held for adminstrative approval.

Except for trusted users, all comments and posts are held for administrative review. Spam will not publically appear.

A valid e-mail address. All e-mails from the system will be sent to this address. The e-mail address is not made public and will only be used if you wish to receive a new password or wish to receive certain news or notifications by e-mail.
