Will Now Moderate TJ Registrations

In order to keep the spammers away, all new registrants here will be moderated before being allowed to post.
This will not delay anyone joining in a legitimate way. It takes away the automation but our traffic is low so NBD.

How do I know if someone is legit? Well, the last spammer was easy to uncover - google pato100 ban

Spammers, just go the f away........

I read sites for forum moderators and it is a serious problem for sites with many new registrations every day. They have to keep the process automated and get hammered constantly.

I actually enjoy foiling these spam losers. What I find amazing is there are users out there who follow spam ads like these for questionable electronic goods and actually buy something - PT Barnum had it right -
