We used to allow signup with yahoo accounts, but due to the severe amount of spam we were receiving that stopped a while ago. I don't know if they'd take another look at that policy or not, but we'll check into it.

The ban on yahoo and hotmail accounts will stay as is due to the reasons listed above. They did suggest however that those who do not have an ISP and need to use a free account to join the site sign up to a gmail account. Gmail signup.

don't you have to be invited by someone with Gmail to get a Gmail account?

Not anymore to my knowledge. I thought the trial period was over.

From the Gmail FAQ

Can I sign up without the invitation code? Or without a mobile phone?

You need to receive and enter a special invitation code in order to create an account. Currently, we are only sending these codes as text messages to mobile phones. So you will need to have a mobile phone with text message capabilities (most phones have this) and the invitation code itself.

One of the reasons we are offering this new way to sign up for Gmail is to help protect our users and combat abuse. Spam and abuse protection are two things we take very seriously, and our users have been very happy with the small amount of spam they've received in their Gmail accounts. We take many measures to ensure that spammers have a difficult time sending their spam messages, getting these messages delivered, or even obtaining a Gmail account (spammers will often use many different accounts to send spam). Sending invitation codes to mobile phones via SMS is one way to address this, as the number of accounts per phone number can be limited.

If you want to open an account a different way, you may want to ask a friend with a mobile phone to receive an invitation code for you or to ask someone you know who already has a Gmail account to email you an invitation.

So it looks like you have to have a cell phone, so that's better than nothing at all. Also, admin never said anything about excite mail accounts so you may be able to sign up with that too. I'll have to ask.

Ok, excite mail accounts are not blocked, do not require a cell phone to sign up, and are free. Go here to get one.

I noticed quite after reading through quite a few threads some of you tend to wander off subject. Let's try to stay on subject if possible. If you want to start an off topic conversation that is fine to do so here. Thanks. :thumbsup:

Junkie Weathermen would be a great name for a band.

I hate to make light of their problems having known my share of adicts and having lost a few friends to heroin but still there is a bit of dark humor in the story. We were joking at work last night that it's that Viper Radar that drove them to it and that Robin Reed is going to have to kill somebody to take the attention away from channel 10.

A friend of mine is a cameraman for channel 10 but I haven't talked to him since all this broke.

Marc Dannon of WCBS-TV was caught buying drugs in Manhattan and he got fired from the station. It wasent long until another tv station picked him up for a weatherman position.

The ironic part of the whole Storm Team 10 drug-abuse debacle is that if it had happened at another local station, News Channel 10, would have done a major investigative report on it :lol:
