 Hi there.
I tried a little while ago to register on this forum as I recently bought a WDTV Live. However, I can't get anywhere near the forum as it says I am banned and accuses me of being a spammer!??

I can assure you I am nothing of the sort and don't understand why your site would think that of me. I have e-mailed the owner of this site for help but there has been no reply. Please could someone look into this for me as I would really like to be able to use this forum.

Regards,

BritishBeef.

I had the same problem so last saturday I managed to access the site and register using a friends PC. I sent a message to Admin (Jay) and have just been allowed to access it from my home PC today, thanks guys :)

Give it time and I am sure they will sort it out.

I feel your pain, unfortunately what the board owners have to deal with is a new type of BB spam software which auto posts spam everywhere. I run a small forum and it seems like I was getting about 20 people a day registering with this program with the soul intent to post spam. Spent more time canceling and banning user accounts and it pretty much took the fun out of it. Finally found some php code that makes them solve or answer a question before they can register and this has pretty much stopped them in their tracks.
