Hello all,

As part of the new anti-spam procedures in place, I ask people who are registering to send me an email confirming that they're not robots and that they've read the rules. Here's the thing, though: if you're registering here, and you've read the site rules, I expect you to be able to string together a few coherent sentences. If English isn't your first language, that's fine -- I completely understand, and will take that into account. If, however, you can't be bothered to write a few coherent and spell-checked sentences, I am probably not going to activate your account.

I'm not asking for an essay. I'm not asking for a resume. I'm not even asking you to prove that you know anything about the topics discussed here. I'm just asking you to prove that you're capable of contributing to the discussion by writing legible, intelligent sentences.

Thanks for your time, and happy posting!
