Temporary or disposable email addresses

Please do not use temporary or disposable email addresses to register as a Member of the TexasCHLforum. We are in the process of identifying temporary or disposable email address domains and are putting them on the banned email list.

If you have registered using a temporary or disposable email address, just log into the User Control Panel and change it to a legitimate email address. You will receive an automated confirmation email. If you cannot logon because you used a disposable email address that has been banned, just send me an email with your screen name and the legitimate email address you want to use and I'll update your profile.

Could you explain a little bit about what you consider a temporary disposable address vs. a permanent address?

Temporary/disposable email domains automatically delete the email address after a specific time, usually 10 to 30 minutes. They are promoted as a method of circumventing the need to use a legitimate email address for registration purposes. Spammers and spambots rely upon them heavily.

I just registered with my Hotmail address. I have had this same account since 1999. ar15.com won't take it so I blow them off. I am a firm beliver that ISP provided emails are nothing more than another way to keep you from changing providers. Which is funny since I've had the same ISP since moving to this house. I have long forgotten my assigned email. The account is registered now to my gmail account. Hotmail will save your stuff way longer than you might want them to. Just a thought concerning email addresses.
