It keeps the robots out of the forums.  It is pretty standard these days.  If you cannot get an email in your current situation then a lot of stuff is closed to your participation.

Can't you sign up for an email account through your local service provider/cable company?  Wouldn't hurt to give them a call. :shrug:

Hayshaker. you can use a free disposable online e-mail for this stuff. It's a working e-mail for only a short time and free. As long as you don't need to rely on e-mails from others on the forum it's perfect for just registering. Later on, if you get a real e-mail address you can log in and add it.

I like this one myself.
