I am having to vet all new registrations because we are having problems with spammers.
For example dazarooney has also joined the Chevrolet Club forum, the Daewoo Club forum, the mccomputers forum, the talkelectricians forum, the staticcaravanadvice forum, and around another 20 I am not going to waste time listing - and all in the last couple of weeks! There are websites which list known spammers by their IP address or email address and we check all new member applications against these before approving them.
So if existing members see new members apparently joining and then leaving in a hurry it is because they are likely to be attempting to sell us cheap flights, theatre tickets, currency or foreign lottery tickets and I am taking the exceutive decision to drop them off before they get on here.

It would be really helpful if NEW MEMBERS filled in their details as completely as possible - including full name and some details about your stamp collecting habits - which will help us quickly determine that your interest is genuine. You can always remove or change your details once your application is approved if you do not want everyone else to see them.
I began this forum as a place to discuss and share ALL cinderella stamps. It is my first forum and is not perfect BUT I will endeavour to make it the best available.

Any positive help appreciated!
