Recent spam posts results in ban of two users
« on: September 04, 2012, 06:53:04 AM »
Thanks for the emails alerting me to the recent posts from gerhyuonix and shilaosk.  These two have been permanently banned and the  posts removed.

If you see spam or questionable posts please email me of the activity so action can be taken...

Thanks

Chuck

Way to stay on top of it Chuck.

Chuck,
Can you record and ban the IP addresses of these mofos?
I suspect, they will probably try and sign up again under
new usernames.

We should all thank Chuck for helping to keep the
garbage off the forum.

Thanks Chuck.

Way to stay diligent Chuck.

Eventually they'll stop trying to register, knowing someone like you is
keeping an eye out.
