This site's registration process...

Dear All,


I won't have anything technical to say for a while since I have to wait for a couple of months for a board.  But in the meantime I have two questions about this site's registration process:


1. Why do I have to specify my date of birth and gender?

2. Why does it take a week to get approved?


I've used many forums, mailing lists, etc. over the years, and I even run one myself, and this is not how others function.  It doesn't give a great welcome to people to be faced with these two issues.


Regards,  Phil.
