I registered but didn't get my confirmation email - why?
If the email containing your confirmation URL did not arrive, it may have been eaten by a spam filter. If you are able to, browse your "spam" folder, the confirmation message may be sitting there. If you can't do that, try temporarily turning off your spam filtering, and register one more time.
