—if you receive one and are a real person who thought you’d applied for membership, just write to me: go to the splash page for my address up in the blue line, got it? And write to me saying “I am not a robot” and I can fish your application right out of the ‘denied folder’ and put you into the ‘approved stack’, no other action required. I get up to ten membership applications WITHOUT that daily, and most are spammers. Don’t take any grief from it: nothing at all meant personally—I just need to know you’re not selling puppies from wherever.
