I just signed up for this forum and found my activation email sent to the spam folder in gmail with the message:
[b]We've found that lots of messages from server.davesnetwork.ca are spam.[/b]
Perhaps a letter to google would convince them of your legitimacy? Otherwise maybe you could change your email service to one google is not filtering.
The presence of a few active people is often reason enough for people to join. The first thing I do is scan the last post date of all the categories to see if they are recently updated. The reason I decided to stay longer is the name of the site is so perfect that I want it to become what it obviously intends to be.
I'm considering writing some posts myself with the ulterior motive of making the site look a little more active. On the plus side I did find this place by a google search. My interests are emotions and motivation.
