My System Specs

Default

I believe it all has to do with spam and the free email accounts from which a majority of spam comes from. Free email german addresses are not alone - I believe the entire Russian (.ru) domain has been blocked as that consists of a good 50%+- of spam that comes through, certain Chinese and British domains have been blacklisted as well. There are also specific American email domains primarily associated with spam that make the list.

The domains aren't specifically listed as the number of blacklisted emails domains I have seen number in the tens of thousands.


I will inquire as to whether we can put a clear noticed in our registration form about the policies in place to avoid further confusion.
