I'm a new member here. During the initial registration, I put my regular e-mail address at hotmail.com, but this site wouldn't accept it. I used an alternative address, got registered and went to correct my profile in order to provide my Hotmail address again. No dice.

Why does Shotgunworld Web Site rejects perfectly legitimate hotmail e-mail addresses and forcing new users to find a way around it?

When you are getting flooded, the normal approach is to try to shut off the water source, that is what the admin did and I continue to do. You would be astounded at the number of throwaway domains that are used to flood spam on sites like this. Using those sites, spammers have signed up about 50K spammers to this site. Most of which have tried to put spam ads onto this site.
And people wonder why I am grumpy sometimes. :roll:
