OMG do you even read? Or do you refuse to believe anything that is contrary to what you think?
I'm not going to go sign up for any forum I have no use for. Sorry but that's a waste of my time.
That's ONE forum and honestly you over-exaggerated your position, which is fine but one forum is not A LOT of forums. It barely fits SOME forums.
I've never had any issues signing up for a forum with my Gmail account. I belong to Overclock3D.com, 49erswebzone.com, ExtremeGiants.com,RodneyReynolds.com,Overclock.net and a lot of other sites. I signed up for all of them with my Gmail account. Half of them went right into my spam folder when they sent the confirmation request. I'm sure that's an excuse that was given, but as far as I've experienced, it couldn't be further from the truth.
Besides I also have a MySpace and Facebook account and every spammer I've ever seen will try to bait you into going to Yahoo, Hotmail and AoL. I'd be willing to bet that you've seen the same spammers and they say the same things to you.
