Thanks for pointing that out, it's one user name that should be in the exclusion list.
#2
Unfortunately that was probably a Scammer with intentions of misleading someone.

Its very easy to do though, By sometimes using shortcase or uppercase it also lets the names through (Like Rayman instead of rayman for example)

You can also normally replace these letters with accents like :

â
ê
î
ô
û

Although sometimes not recognised as a letter by the system and will force you to input something else.

Also as you've seen 1's for I's etc.

I don't know how they do it, But i'd imagine they also look at memberlist > Advanced search > Join date > Descending (as you probably knew anyway.)

Name and shaming spammers?, If you was to mark down every spammer it would be pages full already! (Either the mods do an extremely good job or This place is very lucky!, I haven't seen many spammers at all, But being this kind of site, I'd expect loads.)

This is strange, if someone is 'banned' does that mean they can still log in and browse?
I'm confused.

LOL, you should have been promoted to a mod for doing that!

Also, out of interest, how did Student20077 manage to post when he still had banned under his name ? (he said his ban was removed at the time, although I think he is banned again)

Although they showed as being active, they can't in fact see any forum or post or log in.

It seems like he was given a temporary ban, Which was lifted, He came back and did the same thing again (Mixture of insults and spamming) and was banned again.

Could be wrong though, He said something along the lines of threatening Paul (Admin) if the ban wasn't lifted, Utter rubbish though!! :)
#20
Threats don't influence banning decisions, so he wouldn't have had the ban lifted for doing that. He was banned for the second time because of his continued abusive and disruptive forum behaviour.

Thought so, I wouldn't have questioned the Admins/mods decision anyway. We all knew what Student20077 was like and any ban implemented is normally always well deserved.

He just tried to put another of his hard man acts on and it didn't work. :)

Guy was a plonker- deserved the ban. sy lost his temper I would have too, and served his time. Great modding all round. I bet most of the mods would have congratualted Sy too if it didn't make 'em look unprofessional. As it was thats gotta be the shortest 24 hour ban ever :giggle:

Out of curiosity if you're banned you can still look on HDUk as a guest or something can't you? In other words you can still read the forums but not contribute?? Is that correct
#23
This really cracks me up:-

student20077
i dont buy this cheap shower gel. i buy more upmarket shower gel like gucci. anyway i already get hot gals attracted to me.

p.s. u lot r probably wondering how did i get to repost after i got banned. well the answer is i spoke directly to the boss of this site and reported those employees who banned me unlawfully and not banning those who swore at me. thats why he un ban me and gave me special priveldges. good day every1

Just seen your post on FS. :)

Sadly a permanent probably won't work as he's attracted to HUKD like a fly to....shi...

I hope he doesn't come back though.

He said he was going to change when he was Jase159!!

No refunds then though (Or Rob/Bazzaric didn't mention if they did).

Can anyone confirm if his I.P address has been temporary banned?

(And because its now a second offense after apologising for the first, I don't think he should be allowed back.)

I did receive a cd from him, but not the bloody item I purchased in the first place...he had said before he lost the data cable, then 'found it'. Six months later and he sends the software cd but not the data cable...I just gave up!!
