If you are connecting via a dialup or public terminal in particular, you may happen to have the same IP (Internet address for the machine you are connected from) as someone who has previously been found to have spammed or defrauded us.

We apologize for the impact on honest users, and ask that you please reconnect to the Internet if possible, as this will give you a new IP in most cases – and then retry signing up. You can also mail us and have us remove your IP from the blacklist (if you know what the IP is).
