AOL, AOL, AOL, AOL.
If you have AOL, firstly please accept my commiserations. After a good decade since I first read what the popular nickname for AOL was, they still are not any better. Sadly, for users of AOL, you will probably not know that there is a problem. In fact there are many problems, but the one that gets me is email.
If you have an AOL account, please be aware that AOL just deletes many emails that are addressed to you, without letting you know. So if you use an AOL email account here, you will not receive registration or notification emails, because AOL deletes emails from forums. Brilliant!
If you need
an automated email from here (like the lost password email or something similar), then AOL will also relieve you from the burden of actually receiving that email, and will kindly delete it for you. So you will not be able to use any of these forum features.
If you do lose your password, you're probably best contacting me first, using the contact us
The solution to the AOL problem is of course to move away from AOL, or if you don't want to do that, at least get a third party email account that actually works. Like gmail
Finally, here's a cartoon to keep you amused while you wait for the email that will never arrive:
