Security precautions put in place prevent access to certain aspects of the site.
Some areas of the site, such as certain aspects of the Members Directory, are only accessible once you create an account and verify your email address. This is necessary to prevent SPAM bots from accessing the site and to prevent other personal data from being disclosed to search engines.
Important! Account holders who do not verify their email address within 1 month from the time they create their account are automagically purged by the system.
