I don't have enough information but a referral says she's getting a "this site precludes spammers" message when she tries to join up. Anyone guess what she's doing wrong?

She's Hotmail: I recommended she try another email service and see if it happens again.

Same here and no problem :)
Basically the only reason why someone would have a problem would be if the email or ip addy or username(this is it most cases) matches the same username of a spammer that was submitted to a central database.

So this is the situation.

Someone comes to BCAQUARIA and signs up with username SHAWN and email [email protected] with ip:192.168.3.3, BCAQUARIA takes his info and verifies it with the spammer database, if either of those email or ip addy or username matches, then the registration is denied.

Most times it's the username

Yes, i agree it's frustrating in some cases, but it honestly protects us from hundreds of spammer/bots which try to register on a weekly basis.

I have been denied in some places due to the fact that I use a .name email addy. When the system checks the email address it checks to make sure that the top level domain is 2 or 3 digits. a .name is 4. As time goes on fewer and fewer places are denying me :)

Thanks, folks; looks like we've straightened thing out for her. She's a student with a fighting fish, so I'm suggesting "bettagetstudying"! close, please!
