Default Need access with my Yahoo address

Hello,

I purchased (paid a lot of $ for it) an NVIDIA G-Force card.
And now I need some help with using it, but I find out that I can't register my Yahoo e-mail address on this website.
For obvious reasons I'll have to cancel my commercial e-mail account in these challenging times and I can't understand why this site won't allow me to enter my Yahoo e-mail address even after I finished the initial registration process.

That's just not fair to punish folks like me for what some commercial SPAMer does 10000 miles away.

What kind of a jackass reply is that?!
I came in here for help, not to be ridiculed.

Thanks for nothing Mr. J.

Yes, but *only* because I haven't yet gotten around to quit my legacy e-mail account.
Once I did that, I won't be able to receive any e-mails from this website and if this forum has a "heart beat checker" for account e-mails, then my forum account might even get purged down the road.

As far as I know, Yahoo accounts are being phased out because of spambots using yahoo and other webmail accounts to gain access to the forums and spamming the forums.

Well I don't think they're "being phased out".
They are all flat out blocked already.
But all of this is mute I think, because I can't find any help with NVIDIA under Linux on this site at all.
And since that's all the NVIDIA issues I got, I will have to go look for help elsewhere anyway.
