Thanks for your input!

This is now about the 30th time (no, REALLY, this __IS__ the 30th time,
or possibly even 50th!) that someone has severe issues with WineHQ
forum registration, in the last 12 or so months.
Could someone _please_ finally do something practical about it?

Doing severe cross-posting to make sure this does get noticed, thanks.

(I should be doing entirely different things ATM, but I simply cannot
let this huge usability and mailbox clogging issue linger any longer,
thus I'm escalating it, sorry)
