Any message from this site will appear to come from empegbbs_admin @ miniinfo.net . So, if you wish to register here, or wish to use the e-mail notification of personal messages or new threads, make sure this address is in your white list. I am seeing an increasing number of non automated verification requests to get around draconian spam filters, and I will not jump through hoops for people who choose to implement these systems.

Is "empeg_admin@miniinfo.net" a valid email address? In other words, if my spam-blocker tries to send a feeler message to that address to verify, it won't bounce, right?

New address now, empegbbs_admin @ miniinfo.net. The old address simply gets nuked, as it was a great source of spam wasting mail bandwidth.

And there are still a few people who have not added the address to their white list, causing pretty much a new message daily to my admin box. In two weeks, I will manually start disabling any board generated e-mail reminders about posts that go to addresses that simply fill up my inbox with junk in an effort to prevent your inbox from filling up with junk.
