In order to join as a Forum Member (i.e., become a plebe), we require that our Guests make themselves known through a few threads on this board. Due to the number of spammers constantly attempting to attain membership, we're expecting that you prove your "humanity". Membership isn't required to start a thread on the Guest Board, so don't abuse the privilege. Spam and product links will be killed joyfully, without toleration. If your post is without merit, or off-topic, or even impolite, we'll kill it fast. Worthwhile posts will be moved where appropriate.
