Right now there's a few new "SEO" companies out there that hire people in second and third world countries to literally sit at computers and manually sign up for memberships to these forums to post spam. We have a thread on that topic which you can find elsewhere on this table of The Electric Speakeasy... if you want to talk about the evils of these Spammers that are hired by "SEO" companies, feel free.
Starting this weekend - if you want to join the Electric Speakeasy all you have to do is send us an email - give us your email address, your requested Username and we will give you a TEMPORARY password. You can even send along an avatar for you to use and we'll load that up for you, too!
Also include a brief sentence or two about why you want to join or how you heard about us. Send your membership requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
