There seem to be a few difficulties.

Gurgle Chrome utterly refused to load the page.  (Admittedly, I have an 
ancient PC and a paleolithic ISP, so perhaps that's the source of the 
problem.  It often is.)

Seamonkey (my personal no-bells-and-whistles choice for these 
newsgroups) loaded the page without difficulty, and I was able to reach 
the "sign up" page.  "Terms and conditions," however, was problematic. 
That link sent me to a very briefly visible page in French (I think; 
doubtful that I could have read much of it in English or Klingon either 
for that matter), followed by an immediate redirect to a page that 
didn't seem to have anything to do with Terms and Conditions.  Well, 
call me paranoid (we are, after all, living in the Last Days*), but I 
found that troubling and just backed out.

Well, maybe it's just me, but at least I tried.
