I tried v7n.com as they seem busy, but they banned me for spamming them (WTF? - why what did I do?!).
This is seriously irritating as they wont reply to my attempts to contact them... and worse, they SOMEHOW seem know that it me every time I try and open up an account there using a different email address, even though I am clearly out all my cookies. Even if I try on a different computer in a different geographic location.
It's extremely sinister in fact. Imagine if Facebook or Twitter or even Google could somehow ban you from ever using their sites(!)
And all I get is that "users are only allowed to open one account". And given that they never seem to reply to their contact us forms, what is one to do?
Fwiw, yes, I used to be a paying member of http://www.webmasterworld.com and the quality was excellent, however at (GBP): £99.61 per year that is insane money for nowadays...
But I still post over there as there are some interesting discussions.
Yes, their moderation sounds completely out of control. However on balance, moderation is useful so long as the site is still usable. So I'd still quite like to join them. But I have no idea how to do so! Any thoughts?
P.S. Maybe I need to get in touch with Antwerp drugs barons to see if they can recommend me a "professional hacker" to get in
