I have changed some settings on user registration to prevent automated crawlers and spambots registering for accounts.
You should now receive an email asking you to verify your email address and account information before your account becomes valid. It should not take more than a couple of hours to receive this email.
I also went through and removed a lot of the spam accounts. If I accidentally deleted your account, I do apologize. Please create a new account. If you have submitted proposals, they will remain unaffected.
Thanks for your cooperation!
