Why do we want people to register?

Some of the functions on site need to be monitored and followed in order to ensure that content is always acceptable and relevant to the site. By only allowing registered members to submit or access some content we can be assured that you continue to get what you enjoy. This also allows us to "ban" a member who misuses certain functions.
