When you try to view the forum, and appear: "Login required. The page you're trying to access requires you to log in." or "Only registered members are allowed to access this section", it`s not good! (To 99% of BuxHost PTC sites, if we do not have a account, we not allowed to visit their forum. Have they something to hide? Of course yes, very many things like the complaints, in no case valid proof of payments. Do not recommend to invest money on PTC sites with secret forums!)
When you try to register on forum, and appear: "...The administrator will review your account and if approved you will receive an e-mail at the address you specified." Very suspicious!
