Tip 5. How can membership to such a wonderful website be free? Is this a scam?
This website is mainly run as a hobby of Glen, the Admin. It doesn't cost very much to run this website and Glen enjoys building websites. Call him crazy, but he does this stuff for fun!
Tip 6. Why do you want my email address with my "free" membership? Are you a nasty spammer?
The reason an email address is requested is to stop spammers filling up the MelbourneChat.org website with rubbish material (e.g. porn, links to Viagra salesmen etc). It allows us to ban people from the MelbourneChat.org website if they act inappropriately. This is an important measure to protect the website and keep it family friendly. We are not spammers! Feel free to use a "throw away" email address like a hotmail or a yahoo account when you register. It is good practice to use a second email address for this sort of online registration anyway.
