I just noticed that the poster's browser and OS are repeated.

The login field asks for user name, but seems to require e-mail?


When registering it was a bit frustrating to first learn that the password had to be 8 characters (mine was 8), then when I added a few characters I learned that it also had to contain upper case letters... It would have been nice to know all that from the beginning.

Thanks for the suggestion. I added a note in How to Use this Forum (http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,6.msg21.html) about this.

It looks like the os detector module is glitchy. It's removed now.

I keep getting kicked out of the forum. A "honeypot" website has decided that I am a spambot, based on my IP.

However, I have no control over my IP, which is assigned dynamically to me as a dial-up user.

Can't the forum software detect my cookie and recognize me as a registered user?

I just relaxed the anti-spam module permissions to whitelist all registered users.
