    Bloomin heck, "Australia" !. Admin why dont you make access
    only to UK residents, anyway ?. Mind you dont know how to do
    that ,but Times does it by excluding IP's from other than UK blocks.

    Soon as my Monorail is constructed you can have a nice large
    donation !.

    Thanks DomainGenius, we do personally approve every application as we have been spammed by people just trying to get their site into forum signatures.

    .co.uk is being regged by people from all over the world as they see its value grow. It would be very difficult for us to limit the site to UK residents just by looking at their web identity and hopefully, more people buying .co.uk means higher prices as the supply of good available names dries up.

    We are contemplating banning member applications with Hotmail type accounts as it allows them to mask their identity. If you are a domainer it is unlikely (in our opinion) that you would not use a better email account than a freebie webmail one. However, apart from the odd incident, luckily the forum seems to be good natured so far so we have let it go.

    We are still thinking of making the lists pay-per-view as has been suggested by some members but our original plan behind this site was to give "the man in the street" a chance to pick up a few decent names, which is why we made it donation based.

    Unfortunately there are those who take and take and never give anything back.

    Happy Hunting!

    Noted. I think that pay per view would give the forum a different
    feel and not the intended or in the main present one.
