Do you have a Sbcglobal, Pacbell, ATT, or AOL email? Read this.

Here is why:
Many years ago those providers (I think they are under one entity now) stopped delivering BARF emails to their users. Our emails are not placed into the users junk / spam folders. They never see the email.

What this means to current BARFers:
Current users with Sbcglobal, Pacbell, AOL: emails never receive emails from BARF. No subscription notification, no PM notification, nothing (Admin emails appear to be sent differently and may not be affected).

Forgot your password? Users with Sbcglobal, Pacbell, AOL emails will not receive a password reminder / reset email.

Want to change your email address? You will need to change it to a different email provider. For all the reasons above, we will not allow users to update their email to a Sbcglobal, Pacbell, or AOL address.

What this means to new users:
During the registration process you will receive a notification pop-up that says that their email is banned. They may assume it is their specific personal email not their provider. I suppose that some people give up and never register, some people email us asking for help. We reply with an explanation, and most just use a different email address, older guys reply with "I only have one email address and don't want to pay for another" and give up.

Please pass this on to your friends.

I didn't even know that AOL emails were still a thing.

Comment here:
A superior rider uses superior judgment to avoid situations that require superior skill.
