The database seemed to be getting overloaded with spam accounts and I've been going through and deleting all of those. Unfortunately, it's not a quick process and, in the process of deleting tens of thousands of spam accounts, I might have unintentionally deleted several active accounts for regular members.
Unfortunately, if that happened to you, then there is really no way to retrieve your previous account, you will have to log back in under a new name. Please make sure to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
once you have so I can immediately approve your new account. I apologize for the inconvenience.
