See Sept 2013 Update below

Jan. 2011
This past week I've been bombarded with spam
(AKA unwanted online business ads) membership requests.
When I was the mod on the Ameraucana forum we got to know the identifying earmarks
and tactics of spammers so I've been rejecting some of member requests that appear to be spam.
If I didn't this forum would be flooded with Viagra, singles ads and porn.
If you are a non-spam person whose membership was denied you can drop me an email
and tell me a little bit about yourself and why you want to join this forum.
All email addresses must be valid and IP's are checked.
Anybody who posts spam on this forum will be immediately banned.
Sorry for any inconvenience to prospective Seb lover members.

Sept. 2013 Update
My most vocal critic is calling our forum a "gated community" and a clique.
FACT: Don't listen to the misleading rumor mill voices....ANYBODY is welcome to join our forum.
If your membership was not activated it could be for the following reasons:
A. Your membership activation got over looked because it went in my junk mail.
B. OR for the reasons stated above. (filtering out spammers/you we're accidentally denied)

If you joined but can't login send me an email so I can check to see if your membership was activated
or check for other possible technical glitches.
This is free forum service and it does have occasional technical issues,
such as not being able to login. This is the most common problem here.

Do I run a tight ship here...UNAPOLOGETICALLY YES!...I have to in order to protect our forum from spam, trolls and haters.
I would not hesitate to throw anybody out if they came here and started being rude or tried to run rough shod over our membership.
I have also been judged for not allowing people read this forum unless they're a member here..simple reason why...
there are haters out there that scrutinize and twist just about everything I say and do in an effort to slander me
and/or to make our forum look bad so I'm not going to fuel their fire by allowing them to read here.

The first Sebastopol forum is now dead because people were AFRAID,
(yes afraid, they emailed me and told me this) to post there for fear of getting their head
bit off by certain individuals so that's why I started this forum so I would have control
over those types. Plain and simple...anybody can join this forum but nobody will be allowed
to be rude or make condescending remarks to the membership here.
If some people think that's being a clique, so-be-it...
We're a friendly, laid back community and we plan to keep it that way thank you! -> : thumbsup

HUGE ->:thanks to all our participating members for making this place a safe and friendly place to visit ->:thanks

I second Barb and Wendy in thanking you Vicky for all your efforts in keeping this forum a safe, friendly and informative place to be.
It can't be easy filtering out the troublesome and inflammatory dross that seems to permeate nowadays.

If this is a gated community, then I am extremely happy to be here. -> :leaves
