    I hate Earthlink's Spam Blocker
    Can I just tell you how annoying Earthlink's Spamblocker is? Everytime someone registers here and get the verification e-mail and they have Earthlink, I get a stupid notification saying I need to click this dumb link and verify that support@mac-forums.com isn't spam.

    I would think that eventually Earthlink would get a clue and understand that anything coming from our address is not spam.

    Well tonight it finally pushed me over the edge when we sent out the notification of the new User Reputation System and I got back like 30 of those dumb things in 5 minutes.

    So for all you with Earthlink, disable it or add support@mac-forums.com to your whitelist because as of now, I refuse to ever click on another one of those stupid links again!!!

    <rant mode off>

    Ok I think I feel better now :dive:

    you could always try making a redirected url for new members, so they don't think its spam.

    It's not the members thinking it's spam, it's Earthlink's stupid Spamblocker. It's a server-side thing.

    darn earthlink, that could prove more difficult, you'd have a few loops to jump through to
    redirect it in a way so that earthlink never sees the mac-forums end until its too late, if at all.
