In the past this forum has had considerable trouble with spambot registrations and postings. As you know, some of the porn and advertising spammers send out, Christians and moral people do not want to see even once. It is a sad commentary on this world that the immoral and the evil make it difficult for everyone.

Lately there has been some trouble for legitimate people who want to join this forum understanding the requirements for registering to post in this forum. The necessities for joining are simple. There are some software sub-routines which require a new member to sign up with a valid email address. If the email address used in registration is not valid then I cannot send a verification letter out. I am prevented from activating any registration which is not verified.

When one registers, they must follow the registration instructions not to change any profile settings until after their account is activated. This is a software loop which helps keep out the spambots.

Then, I send out an "activation request letter" which asks you respond by emailing it back to me. This lets me know you are a real person. Then, after a simply reply to sender, I will activate the account. Next is a copy of the letter I send out.

Sample letter for activation:
Quote:
Subject: Welcome and Marantha: Response request for activation

Dear ____ : Welcome- Maranatha- The Lord comes.

-- Thank you very much for your registration in the forum TruthInJesus.net. Your participation is appreciated. Please pardon this necessary step in your registration activation. Your registration, as a sign of spiritual support is precious to us. After activation, feel free to post whenever you feel moved to or desire.

TO ACTIVATE: JUST CLICK REPLY AND SEND -- that is all that's needed.

In the past, the forum has had much trouble with spam robots. One of the security procedures to help prevent this, is for me to request you respond to this email before I activate your account in the forum. My apologies for any inconvenience.

Just click reply and send to let me know you're alive. This way I know you are a real person wanting to register. My apologies for this necessary registration step. I will activate your account as soon as possible, after your response. I'll send you notification as soon as it is done. If for some reason, I don't hear from you in a week or so, I will need to delete the registration, to keep the memberlist updated correctly. If for some reason, your registration gets deleted by accident, just email me.

Again welcome, and thank you for registering your interest. Thank you in advance for your participation, spiritual support, and any input you care to share.

Yours truly, in Jesus,
Ken Floyd

A real and active email account is necessary for this step to work. If one registers with a inaccurate, or unused email address, I cannot send the letter to you. That will result in your registration not getting activated.

I am really really sorry this step is necessary. If I did not do this, there would be several porn and drug posts I would need to delete every day. I hope and pray anyone who wants to join this forum understands I cannot spend all my time deleting bogus registrations. I would rather communicate and discuss the joy and fellowship in our Lord Jesus Christ, than mess with spambots.

Again, please understand this. As I say in the letter quoted above, "Your registration, as a sign of spiritual support is precious to us." Your input and honest discussion is also highly desired.

Again, Thank you in advance for your participation, spiritual support, and any input you care to share. If you have any problems registering in this website forum, do not hesistate to email me at ken@kf1.org -- Cool

Sincerely yours,
in Jesus the Christ,
Ken Floyd
Jesus is coming. Period. . . . .
