Login Issues - Hopefully not as much spam

I've been fighting spam on the backend for the last while. (Limited hours due to personal illness + work catchup sadly). I *think* we are finally clear of the worst of the sources of spam now so I've reactivated the account creation options. You should be able to get to those here: http://planewalker.com/user/register

I'm going to keep an eye on the postings for the next week to try to kick out any more spam sources as we see them.

The first of the new anti

The first of the new anti-spam rules as follows, registration with emails ending in:

.xyz
.top
.ru
.website

Are automatically rejected. (If someone has an actual legit account with one of these emails - please contact me to get registered.) If you're concerned re: why these endings in particular, these are the top four common endings I've been seeing associated with spam accounts.

This is the first line of defense, if we get any more than slip through I'll look for common phrases that are associated with spam posts to pop as well.
