Please note that we continue to have problems with automatically generated user accounts which insert spamming links into our pages. You do not have to register with your first name and surname but please choose a username which appears to have been chosen by a human rather than generated by a computer. Regrettably we will have to block any username which appears suspicious in order to protect the site. If this happens to you, just send an email to email@example.com and your account will be reinstated'
