Spammers And Usernames
« on: December 18, 2008, 08:51:03 PM »
The staff here at The Survival Podcast Forum have been working hard to make this forum a place where all of you good folks can enjoy posting, reading, learning and sharing among your fellow preparedness-minded individuals. We will continue to work as hard as we can to keep this a friendly safe place for this.
With that in mind, we Administrators and Moderators have been fighting a never ending war with spammers, hackers and various other forms of scum sucking internet turds.
Many of these spammers are "bots", or automated programs that register on forums and then go to work posting crap and useless nonsense. Some are real individuals with no redeeming qualities in their pathetic excuses for lives who spend their time hacking and trashing forums.
We are working hard to keep such trash from flooding this board.
Many of these things are registering using usernames that are nonsensical jibberish, for example:
chiellCreaceLem,  AAimalodormot,  Algoguegype,  you get the picture.
If for some reason, one of our staff deletes your account by mistake, please contact us.
We would not under any circumstances  intentionally delete or ban any actual person without
 contacting said person first. If you do get deleted by mistake, please contact one of us, and we will move quickly to correct the mistake. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but these things happen when trying to fight spammers.
Hopefully no one had been knocked off already. We just wanted to let folks know.
Thanks for your understanding and please, as always, enjoy the forum.
