asking for email

posts: 5

When I registered my account it asked for my email but it didn't say how the email would be used or if it would be shown on the page. Since I didn't want the address picked up by spambots I gave a slighly altered address with "REMOVE" in the middle.

Only _after_ I pressed the button did it tell me that the email address would be used to confirm my new account. Of course the altered email I entered is not usable by a program (that's the whole point of altering it). That's why my login is "nuts". It's what I said when I saw what had happened. Well, actually it's a more polite version of what I said.

It would be really helpful if the "create account" page would tell people how the email is going to be used.

Silly you for trying to be clever twisted

All email addresses on tw.o are used for sending password reminders only. And confirmation is required to prevent spamming the site with a mass of robot generated users.

Yes, now that's what they should have told me as I was filling out the account form. It doesn't do any good after I have already hit the OK button.
