I pm’ed one of the mods 17h ago and have no response. I don’t know all the mods, so hopefully an active one will see this post. Please open new accounts. I understand that there have been issues with people misusing the service. I suspect new accounts cannot be created to stop people from circumvent getting their accounts locked to toll free numbers only. If that is the case, I would like to propose a simple solution: Lock all new account creations to toll-free numbers until further notice. It seems the team supports scam-baiters and this is a practically essential service for scam-baiting. Plenty of scams have toll-free numbers, so being locked to toll-free numbers would not stop baiters from baiting.
If new accounts are not being allowed for a different reason, could you tell us and give an eta on when we can make new accounts? I’ve seen a handful of posts about not being able to make new accounts, so I really don’t understand why no one with authority has made a statement. I’m fine with waiting, it would just be nice to see an announcement explaining what’s being done and how long they estimate we have to wait for.
