The way the site is structured, folks who sign up are placed in a group called "New Members." Members in that group have highly restricted privileges, and can post in a single forum where, hopefully, they introduce themselves. Based upon that post, we can easily determine whether the person is a troll or a spammer. Almost always, they are not, and, in response to that post, they are moved to the group "Members" who have more privileges. After a significant number of posts without incident, they are automatically promoted to "Full Members," with even more privileges.
Based upon your above post, I have already moved you to "Members."
The site has been dormant for a while, but we welcome your civil comments on any of the topics already posted or any new topics you wish to start.
Thanks for bringing your concern to my attention. (There is no such thing as bad publicity!)
