Why Can’t I Join Your Forum?

I’ve tried to register for the WritersWeekly forum many times but I never receive a response. What’s going on?

We no longer allow users with free email addresses to join our forum. Tracking those people, in instances of abuse or illegal activity, is very difficult and often impossible. We also require all individuals applying to use our forum to contact us directly with proof that they are indeed who they say they are.

There is far too much abuse, false allegations and, let’s face it, nuts online now and we must take these precautions to protect our honest and professional forum members from becoming victims of abuse. If someone uses a free email address, it’s an automatic indicator that they didn’t even bother to read the first line of our terms of participation. Therefore, we don’t respond to those applications.
