GMail E-Mail Address Dots

Post by Snapdragon » Wed Nov 18, 2020 9:11 am

This applies to anyone registering a new forum account with a GMail address.

GMail ignores dots in the username, so the following E-Mails... ... are all the same account as far as GMail is concerned.

That means spammers can register one E-mail account, and create into an unlimited number of forum accounts, just by putting dots in it.

To circumvent this, the forum has been programmed to reject any GMail with dots in it. Simply remove the dots, and you'll be good to go.
