I presume you are "asking for a friend", because you obviously already have an account.
There are certain checks put in to prevent spammers trying to create accounts. There are lots of spammers that try to make accounts and post here. You do not see the vast majority of them. There are several or many per day. You might have something in the email or profile that is suspicious. I know some of them but not all, and I'm not going to say. Try a different email or call tech support and ask them to manually make on for you. Or else just use this one. However sometimes spammers still are able to make an account and post spam or malware. Many/most of those are automatically filtered out, and we moderators can view the spam quarantine to delete them or let them through (if they were flagged incorrectly as spam). For the very few that get through the automatic filter, they won't last long in the official Answers list because we have many moderators that will remove them very quickly (that's why you probably never see spam here).
