In an attempt to stave off (as much as possible) potential spammers, we have implemented an email verification step to the registration process. Unless the steps are followed completely, new registrants will not be able to post new threads. Verification takes less than 30 seconds (unless you're a really slow mouse button clicker).

After you fill out the registration form and click submit, you will see a message like this:

Your next step is to check the email that you used to register and look for an email with a Subject and From similar to the image below (check junk mail folder if you cannot find the email in your inbox)
