With the increase inregistrations since release I’ve been getting more and more emails regaring banned email addresses and it was only today I realised the error message people received is a little misleading. It simply said that ‘your email address is banned’. It is not your email account specifically that is ‘banned’, it’s the domain. Hotmail, gmail and live email domains were blocked from registration on the forums because the vast majority of spammers/scammers seem to be on those domains and we were also getting a lot of bounces back from those providers, thousands in fact.
