Ok, I Was Checking Out Another Forum
Their forum face is different and I had not visited in over a year and didn't even know if I had ever registered let alone what the username or password was. So I registered only to be denied and told I had the same email and I was a BOT and Bots are not allowed. What they heck is a BOT? I am not even on the member list as the username I was. Can't the realize I forgot the username and password? Geesh! I am a member in good standing here and have no bad intentions at any forum.HuhsignUnsure

A bot is a computer program, often used for posting spam. If the forum had a captcha, you probably typed it in wrong. Just try again.

RE: Ok, I Was Checking Out Another Forum
Some bots are good (Google), some bots are bad (spammers gathering email addresses).

Also, some combinations of usernames are not acceptable by many forum software. At another forum, we had a user who desperately wanted to use a name that was not a real word but the first letter of each word of her favorite book title and the author name. The forum software kept rejecting her and saying she was a bot.

BOT is short for robot...basically a computer program run by a machine to gather information. Bots are used by search engines (google, yahoo, msn, etc) to see what is in a thread for helping people find your forum/site.

Most webmasters like Bots, but have programs in their software to only allow the good bots.

My username there was just my initials of my name in caps. Nothing unusual. I did actually type in the wrong password letters by mistake. I find their c-pap forum hard to navigate thru. I just wanted to read more info. I like to read about sleep apnea info and success stories etc, juat like we all do who come here.
