163.com is a Chinese (PRC) free email service provided by NetEase (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NetEase , a NASDAQ-100 component company).

I don't know why registering with 163.com email addresses forbidden here, as it's one of the most widely used free email services (aside from qq.com, sina.com) in PRC.

Most likely because there were many user accounts associated with the service that were used for spamming on the forum.

Yup. We had almost a month straight of 8-14 times per day with spam from that domain. We didn't want to, but it solves a problem for the larger community.
