I'm not going to call it a grand reopening until more people trickle in...

I have re-enabled registration, which will allow new users to join if they wish.  I have made an important change to the registration process, however: it now requires approval to join.  This is not to prevent any specific person to join, but instead to keep the spammers out.  The spammers have written software that automatically spams sites using this forum software; my previous site, which I set up for a charity, had several hundred spam accounts within a week of opening registration...  I don't need want that sort of crap here.  Requiring approval defeats most of the casual or less sophisticated spammers, and the rest of them will get banned after their first offense.  In the meanwhile I'll approve everyone who isn't on the list-of-known-internet-doucebags provided by my friends at flailing-tentacles, at least as often as I think of it.

It's a good thing that I didn't call it a grand re-opening, because it wasn't.

But then again, the suckage at facebook knows no bound, and therefore maybe people will return.
