For some reason every time i try to log in as a admin it always rejects my password so I don't know what I am doing wrong here, but it allows me in as a mod no problem.

We're getting spam from hotmail and gmail accounts now, if it continues we may have to ban these email domains too!

I think existing users will be unaffected and it will only impact new registrations, we wil test it WW if we decide to do it and when you and I are online at the same time.

Yeah we'll test it if and when we decide to take such drastic action, will only do it as a last message, we'll see how we go........

Yes, unless they use an obvious spam domain, I spotted one the other day, @163.com, which I banned globally.
