I do?
Learn more about JeorgeYes! You put this thing called "unconfirmed membership" on the site, and you never explained what it means.
Oh, sorry about that, Jeorge. Well, when you create your membership account, you'll have the option of creating an account without giving your email address. If you do that, your membership is "unconfirmed"

Jeorge, don't be silly...you've already plastered your email address all over this website...

Because some features aren't available to unconfirmed members.
