So I have been telling a buddy of mine about Neowin for a while now and he finally decided to sign up for the site. Well problem is it will not let him. Everytime he tries to sign up, (and he has done this with 3 different email address' and usernames) and continues to get the same error:



Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

[#1000B] You are not allowed to visit this community.




Again this is with 3 different usernames and email address'


He is mainly trying to use: GeekedUpDJ as his username

probably should have put this in site issues rather than back page news.

Can you PM me his e-mail address and current IP address?

Actually I am guessing this is him here - http://www.neowin.ne...84-geekedup-dj/

He is banned and was flagged as a spammer, I am investigating why.

I have started staff discussion on the issue and will update you asap, but still send me his e-mail/IP if possible in PM
