I know a fellow from SnusOn, who's a long-time participant there. Fwiw, he seems to be a good guy and an active poster. He's told me that he tried to join here a few times, and has been waiting about three weeks to have his membership (account) activated. He's sent Alex a few emails (so he claims) but hasn't received any answers one way or another. I could only advise him to be patient, but I thought I'd throw it out here. Any comments or thoughts?
