    This joker signed up yesterday and sent me an immediate PM asking me to contact him via an e-mail address he supplied. I've heard about similar activity from some other webmasters, so I had pretty good idea what he was doing. I removed his membership and banned his address. And now... he's back! :rolleyes:

    "Surely" sure is a persistent little scammer!

    Thanks Will! I just deleted his membership and banned his address. I was suspect when this guy signed up at 12:54 PM. This was his profile...

    OK... he's trying to get back in again with another e-mail address so I'm taking more drastic measures. I just banned his IP, but I don't like doing this because it could prevent an entire network from signing on.

    Good riddance!

    Good job. Some of the 'boards out there that do not have any moderation on weekends are getting hit hard every weekend. These pests never seem to give up ....
