Unfortunately, spam, and worse, is a big problem on any web board.
New User registrations to this forum are screened by Admin. All genuine registrations are activated.
However, registrations from outtside EU, North America, Australia and New Zealand are automatically deleted. Therefore, new users from outside these countries should please request registration by email to: info421 AT irishpapermoney DOT cominfo421, and then register their username using the same email address.
This is the only way to screen for spam registrations, which sometimes happen in floods of hundreds at a time.
Users are welcome from all countries.
