Spam overload: User registration disabled.
Update 02/Nov/2014: User registration has again been enabled.
To be able to post your blog on this web site you need to be a registered user. That is the usual scenario on most web sites. However, every day 100s of user registrations (and spam posts) are received from spam-bot compromised computers around the world even after installing all the latest anti-spam software modules and implementing the latest anti-spam techniques.
Having to check each and every user registration every day is becoming unbearable in our one-man operation. In the process of keeping the web site clean and useful, I am sure I have deleted some genuine users too amongst the 100s of spam accounts. I am truly sorry about that.
Hence, user (self) registration has now been disabled on this site.
There is however no need to register to be able to READ posts on this site and to COMMENT on those posts.
If you do wish to have a BLOG or POST an important article on this site, send a draft of the post to editor at altnews.com.au. Remember to add your preferred user name in the subject line. Generally, your email will be dealt with within 24 hours. Once your account has been set up, you will receive an email from us and you may then proceed to log in and post your BLOG post.
I apologise for any inconvenience.
