EBSQ Juried Applications will be accepted this month, but not until at least next week. We had to re-write the code for this functionality and it's not quite ready yet.
As for spam-filter stuff, I can't help you there. The "spam" functionality I was talking about was the code for the forums that won't let people change their own email addresses. This is to prevent spammers from signing up with a real email address (required to get a forum password) and then changing it to a fake address, which actually used to happen quite a bit.
Get out of the vacuum and express yourself!
