Just a reminder about part of the rules of the board:


  • No Abusive or Unpleasant Language, specifically swearing.


You are not allowed to swear on this board in anyway. You are not allowed to mask the word to imply swearing by removing some or most of the characters. I think the easiest way of puting what is acceptable, and what isnt, is by asking yourselves this question. Would the BBC

User Registration Issues

Hi All,

The user registration system will be behaving oddly for the next few hours. We are experiencing a huge increase in spam registrations.

Any new user who wishes to register but can't, please try again shortly.
