Seems we have had an issue with spam accounts being created lately. These seem to have not just been bots creating them, but humans on a keyboard ;-)
We are now blocking the IP's of any spam accounts found, and 99.9% of these are from Sri Lanka, as well as a few other countries. If you are attempting to create a new genuine new account, and your IP is within the blocked range, I'm afraid there is nothing we can do about this. The actions of people within your country and ISP, have meant your ISP has been blacklisted. The protection of our members is far more important than any one person.
If you wish to have your ISP's IP range removed from the blacklist, you will need to report this matter to your ISP, and have them contact us with proof they have stopped their services/proxy servers from being used to spam websites/this site. We are more than happy to cooperate with any ISP who contacts us, and supply the info they need to trace the abusers of their services.
