    Default Why can't I use my personal email address to register?

    Says it's banned. Why would it be banned if I've never been here before. Had to register with my Verizon email but will be dropping them soon.

    I am an old member, so perhaps the rules have changed. I believe it might be a way to try to fight spammers. A couple years ago we had a pretty bad problem with advertiser bots registering en masse with garbage user names and fake e-mails. You should be able to use Gmail for this site. Hopefully that helps address your question. If not, the admin should be around soon.

    I use email.com. gmail has more spammers than probably all the others combined.
