    Registration and invalid/dead email addresses

    I created this page to give evidence of the sheer number of people who use invalid or dead email addresses when registering.

    When users register, the registration form advises:

    "Enter a valid, working, non-disposable email address."

    They also have to enter their email address twice. Despite that, every day one or more people register using invalid or non-working email addresses. Some write to complain that they never got their validation email - from a different address, of course.

    If you were expecting an email as a result of signing up a new user account, then it will probably have failed to get to you and deatails will eventually appear somewhere in this thread.

    User accounts that are not validated within two weeks of creation are deleted.

    If you see your email address and either want it off this page or want help fixing the problem, please email us at fòrùms {at} cÿbûrbìã {dot} ðrg.
