I know some of you have had to wait a few days for your registration to be processed, and I thought I’d inform you of why.

The reason for the delay, is because the website you tell us you own, is checked for it’s content (i.e. whether or not it’s malicious). This may seem a bit OTT, but this is an additional measure to prevent bad guys getting hold of API keys to poison the database.

If you tell us you own for example (and yep, we get quite a few of those), your registration is rejected. If you do not specify a website, your registration is rejected (remember, is primarily an anti-spammer database, for use with forums, guestbooks, blogs and websites).
