Reason for banning certain email address domains, is

1. There are very high instances of these domains being used by spammers and trolls

2. Even more of a problem is these free domain providers etc, promote disposable accounts or have quota limits, which means higher chance of these addresses being invalid or ending up in email sent to them from the forums, bouncing back! I had to delete 3,700+ member accounts due to their email address bouncing back over 1,500+ invalid email messages/day - this back logs my email inbox and causes unnecessary loads on the server powering

If you need to contact the Admin or moderators you can post in the Contact Admin forum here
be afraid... Admin cap is back... !
