There seems to be a problem with some people receiving the confirmation emails when registering a new account and some people are not getting this email. If you do not receive the email, please feel free to add a reply here to let us know so we can manually activate your account. We will also check on a regular basis for people that have tried to register and manually activate any accounts that meet the criteria from the registrations that have not confirmed their emails. We apologize for the small delay this is causing in registration and hope to have the tech glitch worked out in the next few days. While I wish we could turn off this step completely, there are simply to many spammers and trolls that try to register to make that possible. W appreciate your understanding of the issue beyond our control. Because many people are still getting the confirmation email right away, we have not been able to determine what the tech issue issue is with the ones that are not be automatically generated.
