Recommended Posts

Got it too. Someone is about to get banned.:DBy the way, I used the Alert link for this topic to alert the mods. In addition to what I said in that alert, the user responsible is "amanda abu" with user ID 155904.

He / she / it are now history. We will start to have to ban gmail addresses if this stuff keeps up.

"We will start to have to ban gmail addresses if this stuff keeps up"I thought anonymous email addresses are banned already? GMail has the same anonymity as yahoo, msn or hotmail. Regards,John
