It's only for subscibed threads and only if you set it to do so in the options.
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said: "I drank what?"

i got one from my ISP for here. But i dont understand why people cant use free email services for here? What does it do? This is one of the very few forums ive ever seen do this.


For one thing, it eliminates some of the thought that you are anonymous on the internet. The internet has caller I.D. and its not easily blocked.

Because people feel anonymous they feel they can say or do anything they want without repercussions. By doing this it cuts down on people acting stupid.

Also, eliminating free email services also keeps people who are banned, from just going and re-registering again every 5 seconds until I can really pin them down.


Bg is not the only website I have seen do this, in fact more and more are doing it daily.

I would skip Gmail.

Your hotmail will work as long as teh account works, but, you will not be able to change your profile until you change your email.

Aparently some AOL users are blocking Bg because of an email setting. Not because their email is incorrect. if so, find your email block settings and allow Bg, then email me and I can re-enable the account.

You do know thats an option YOU have set right?
In your profile you can turn them off.

If your email bounces, I will disable the account until it is fixed.
