What's the deal, when I invite an old friend who moved to the UAE to come and debate me, he receives this message: -

"It appears that you are attempting to access Debate.org from a region we consider high risk. Due to the overwhelming volume of spam and/or scams that originate in your area, we are unable to provide you access to Debate.org at this time. We do this in order to protect the other members. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please send us your comments."

Is there any particular reason the Oil Rich Emirates has been refused access that perhaps we could know about? It is not my friends fault he had to move down there. Perhaps I could get some clarification for this?

That's bull. Just make them confirm their accounts first rather than last.

You should message one of the new owners directly (RyanN and JuliaD)--they might not see your thread here. They've been very helpful with everything else around here, I'm sure they could work something out.
Should we subsidize education?

I agree!!!

I think we should only screen out people from Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Ha-ha!

Seriously though, it's probably best to block Nigeria and Ghana - but I don't understand why the UAE blocked.
