Many of you already know and for those of you who don't, or who haven't said anything, we had a new member known by the name of pacersfan92 who was spamming people in private messages about any number of things. When complaints came in we disabled his ability to send private messages. Should have solved the problem, right? Wrong. He then began blithering away all over the forum so we gave him a day-long time out to reflect on life the universe and everything. Well, not content on forum inactivity or philosophical musings he logged in with new names (pacersfan92'ssister and gunsmokedillon among them) and proceed to redouble the private message campaign, primarily about joining his new and rival site. Now, far be it for me to tell others what to do but I think I may safely advise that these messages, or any like them, may be ignored. If this sort of behavior continues, then by all means let me or bings know and we'll clamp down on it. Meantime, pacersfan92 has been meted out a more substantial deterrent to annoying behavior. Let's hope it does the trick.

Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Thanks Phineus. Ignore the posts and delete the PM's has been the way for me already. If I receive any more I'll let you or Bingster know.

I found his name among those who have accessed my Multiply site (as pacersfan92). I've blocked him there -- just in case.

I'm going to break the software portion of the thread out into it's own thread in the software forum for clarity.

That was perhaps the second or third time I logged in ZQQT in a while...but ignored the PMs while there... Right now...it's just shows I'm REALLY after that I'm posting there...just to put feelers out...even though everyone in their right mind is here...



No comments from the peanut gallery...
