Registering with skoolie.net [GMAIL, Hotmail, etc]

1) Google is a bunch of jerks, they let anybody register a gmail email address without qualifying that the person is a real person. Therefor 80% of the spam comes from gmail addresses and on a board the size of this one that could mean 200 spams to the board (which have to be cleared manually by humans) per day.

2) No you cannot change to a gmail address yourself, this requires an administrator (aka me) to manually put in your email via the SQL database for your account. A spammer cannot get this accomplished without first spending time pretending to be a skoolie. If you would like to use your gmail address, send me a PM letting me know what email you want to use and I will change it.
