IMPORTANT IF YOU REGISTERED WITH A YAHOO MAIL ADDRESS
UPDATE: I have recovered a few of the deleted accounts from the comments table, so if you have ever left a comment in any article you should be OK: just ask for a password reset from the forgotten password section and you are sorted.
I shouldn't be cleaning the user database while doing a hundred other things at the same time, but lately we have been getting hundreds of fake registrations on the site, so I had to do something about it before going on holidays.
To make a long story short, if you registered with a yahoo email address, there's a good chance your account does not exist anymore, so you will have to register again. This might cause problems with the forum, so let me know below if you experience any problems.
Really sorry about this, I really appreciate the participation on the site and I know that it's not fun to have to register and have a new password and all that … We will raffle a couple of books among all those who re-register in a pathetic attempt to lessen the hate.
The books to be raffled will be the following:
Lesson learned and I will be more careful next time!
