Registration is free and it gives you access to greater features of the site like placing business listings, classified ads, making comments and posting in the forums. The reason we require registration for these areas is because sometimes people feel like they can abuse others if they are anonymous. We don't like cowards so we encourage you to say what you like and take credit for it.
To register you must provide a valid email address so we can confirm your registration. If we can't confirm your email address we won't process your registration and if you should abuse the site or your neighbors in the county we'll block your IP. Simple as that.
If your IP gets blocked and you don't understand why you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a review. Depending on the reason you were blocked we may decide to permit your continued access..
