Minor sign up issue

Hey, just wanted to let you know that if you pick a username that is already taken, the rejection message returned is that "Your Email or IP is associated with a spammer". I was puzzled after changing both my email and IP with my VPN as to why I was still getting that message, but after changing my username I was able to sign up without issue.

Not sure if or how many people run into this but I thought it'd be best to post here so site operators are aware.

Hmm, interesting... I will look into that.

EDIT: It's possible that your first username was actually in the 'spam database'. It was set to check StopForumSpam for usernames as well as IP's and emails... I'm guessing "Brad" was your first choice, right? Wouldn't be surprised if a lot of spambots used that name too... Laugh

I've now disabled username checking.
