Thanks for your interest in Hold The Toast! We welcome your comments and participation in discussion of low-carb. Thanks, and we hope you enjoy the website! NOTE (April 29, 2013): I have (perhaps temporarily) blocked new sign-ups from any @hotmail.com account, due to a very large number of bogus/spam accounts being created lately. If you use Hotmail and want to sign up, please email webmaster @ [this domain], and I will try to set you up with an account you can use. Alternatively, you can pop over to Gmail and get set up with an email account there, as they are generally much better and cleaner about abusive account creation and spamming. Thanks! SPAMMERS TAKE NOTE: Do not waste your time here, and more importantly, DO NOT WASTE MINE. The comments on this website are MODERATED. If you are here to post some semi-relevant (at best) comment with a link to your commercial website (or any other), know that your comment will be deleted without ever being posted, your account blocked, and your IP address banned within minutes, if not seconds. This is called "referrer spam." Don't bother trying it. Also, DO NOT sign up with throwaway email addresses, such as mailinator.com or dispostable.com -- such accounts will be immediately deleted. I won't even wait for the system to delete the unconfirmed account. (In fact, those two in particular are already blocked.) Have a .info email address?

Your location. This will NOT be displayed on the website. Yes, you can lie, but put something here that is a recognizable place-name, not gobbledegook.

Basic knowledge. If you don't know the answer, you are probably a machine trying to spam my website. The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
