It won't send me my password.

I tried to register here because fakeILM is blocked to unregistered users, but it won't send me my password. Then I had it send a new password, but I'm not getting that email either. Yes, I've checked that the address is right. Yes, I've checked my junk folder. WTF?

how long did you wait?

i went through the same process of registering and re-registering. it just took a couple hours for the e-mail to show up.

nm. I just got my password several hours after I ordered it. Now to wait a few more hours for my rescrambled password.

I'm more worried by the fact that 'Haberdager' is already a taken username on this site. Is there a Louis Jagger troll out there just waiting to strike with some well-placed 'squees' or 'kill all Arabs' bullshit?

Slightly nervous about this.

Somebody who's not the Dirty Vicar showed up yesterday with that login name. Is somebody doing the ILX equivalent of domain name squatting on this board, and can they be identified?

Sometimes they can -- if a comedy hstencil or Tombot turns up, it won't be hard to guess who registered them. Othertimes it's just people taking advantage of the fact that some login names aren't reserved yet, and putting them in the box.
