Known spammer - registration denied

I recently tried to register with a forum and used my spare yahoo e-mail address. I unticked a lot of boxes because I didn't want information from third parties etc. I entered a plain user name and a secure password. However when I clicked on register it declined my registration saying the name and e-mail was a known spammer.

I am certainly not a spammer so how come this happened? I would welcome your comments.
