    I'm the_neon_cowboy,

    Its been a long time figured I'd pop in, but I can't login, can't reset password email never shows up
    appears you have blocked free email account like Hotmail etc. that's what I primarily use, setup this with my
    isp email I never use to try a figure out how to get this fixed....

    Neon! It's been a while. :) Yup, Hotmail is blocked. Maybe @Stuart_Davidson could make an exception, send you an email to your old email address?

    Hotmail and a few other of the free Email services has been blocked, Due to HH were being bombarded on a daily basis with spam posts or even accounts..

    At one stage I banned around 15 accounts in a single day which were just clogging up both my time and HH with unwanted garbage that simply could not be trusted.

    Hi Neon, wb!

    Yeah Stu will be able to help, unfortunately he is rather busy these days and stops in rarely.

    I was wondering where all the bots and spammers were!

    I just wonder what email I can use, My primary email account has been Hotmail for like 20 years! Because people change providers,
    let subscriptions end and resign up. Blocking free unlimited lifetime emails like Hotmail when anybody using recent windows has one seem
    a bit absurd (you'll turn away, and block valid users along with spammers) though I understand why they did it...Wish there was a way to
    grandfather us in or something. Most forums just limit new users posting abilities until they have made X number of posts.

    I guess they could use this email I used to make this account. But it will probably change in a few years..

    yea, I still blame world of Warcraft it of killed my online presence when I fell in that dark hole
    it where most of my free time still goes outside my family. Although I broke free of it hold, I
    spend time gold farming...

    I can use this account to post for a bit... I have some of you still on messenger, but not seen since they integrated it into skype.
    People change their emails etc...

    Gmail is my choice for email address right now, it beats the competition by miles.

    I've also been using Gmail for ages now. I use it primarily due to the fact that some ISPs can come and go and I really don't want to lose access to an account in the event that happens again.

    AND.....

    Welcome back, Neon...even though it's not been a very pleasant return for you. ;)

    Thanks, but aren't they are a free email just like Hotmail and Yahoo? One would figure they would be blocked too (for the same reasons ) Gmail's lack of privacy / security leaves a lot to be desired but I could set one up just for this I guess if they work for the site.

    I've pmmed Stuart because he might not have seen this thread yet and brought his attention here so here's hoping.
