Is it worth doing a thread by the mods to say 'who' and a brief explanation 'why' someone is banned.

eg abbusive, advertising, sexual perv, self promo etc

I ask because somme ppl on here are of an odd/interesting character and they disappear without a word through being banned

Also submit banned members here.

You do know that Members can use a 2nd name & come on here & insult & even threaten you & all the Mods do is ban the username,But don't ban the members real username.
The Mods also have the cheek to not let the members know who this member was that was insulting or even like in my case threatened.

Has to be one of the poorest rules on this site.

OP look at Post 398 where a member threatens me & still to this day the Banned member in that thread will be trolling here & also possibly acting as my friend with his/hers real name.
The Mods should name these people.

A right to reply would be good as well but unfortunately may get out of control. If only there was a way around it to see what happened, would be a very interesting read.

edit - maybe have a voting system :D

As I was looking for a refund from paypal/ebay this member said he's reporting this thread to them as I'm trying to scam them & so what he is doing is just abusing this site & members by threatening them by trying to get there refund void.
Saying I knew it was a scam is false,but he was wanting paypal/ebay to believe it was.

And I.

In fact, there's evidence in this thread that the OP KNEW IT WAS A SCAM in advance, but still purchased.

As such, he is totally ineligible for Buyer Protection, period. He went into the sale knowing it was very probably fraudulent.

Accordingly, I've forwarded this thread URL to PayPal and eBay (I have shares in ebay dot com, so it IS my business).

I'm sure some members make up two or more i'ds & let them lie for a while (sleeper multi's) ready to use when the original id gets "banned". I see one member has been banned since last night & I had a feeling they were a multi, been a member for 3 years 5 months & made only 162 post's in all that time, yet jumps straight into the misc as though he knows everyone. But I'm sure they will be back at some point in another guise !!!

The XBox / PS3 fights are normally a good source of entertainment, and can result in a warning or ban. Some of the language and insults used can be colourful to say the least. Silly really, I don't know why a Royal Rumble isn't organised for them all, and they can then fight it out in the ring..

As far as I'm aware your not allowed 2 usernames,but your allowed for say you & your partner to have a username each from same IP Address............How silly is that :-/

Ive never made it a secret that I have a multi account. Its never been noticed, but then it's never posted. I made it when I ws suspended once, and the new site had just gone live - you know, when non-logged in users saw a totally different select of threads and nothing much worked.

Banning people on here is a complete waste of time. They just another username. One member scammed around 20 people in one thread and after all of it ASB said ooops! He was banned before didn't notice that user was on the same IP address! Nice way to look after the members on here! NOT!

Banned members shoud stay banned or Mods may as well just stop banning members.

This site is a farce, alowing racism, hatred and vitriol to carry on without any punishment.

If ASB didn't do his thing in fsft, there would be a hell of a lot more scamming going off. He is but one man, albeit a great man (srs, I've seen it). He gets abuse because he's the only mod who seems to put any real effort into the fs forum.

I don't even know why vibeone was banned, leading to a few members to change their avatars. Though, with the sucking up to ASB in post 26, he should be safe for a while :p

Mods: If members want a ban on members using multi names from same IP Address why can't you do this ?
Seems like most members would welcome this.

Please don't take out your frustrations on others by blaming the system. It turned out to be a previous member who had also been banned. We can't prevent them from coming back under another alias, however when we do have enough info to make a call on that matter, we'll act as soon as it's brought to our attention.

Perhaps if you put as much effort into recovering your losses, scammers/rogue traders would soon get the message. I'm only aware of 1 case where a recovery has taken place. If there were more who followed the trading advice and took a bit of self responsibility, scammers would disappear. It's no point blaming others, our advice is clearly made available to all.

Sorry to be blunt, however rare it may be for scammers/rogue traders to make a visit, we won't accept responsibility for the losses incurred by others who look to pass the blame.

As the vast majority will know, anyone suspected of trading with ulterior motives will face scrutiny and a site ban should we feel the need to add an extra layer of security.

Happy to deal with other issues, but as always, it's easier to deal with facts rather than emotions which seem to cloud the actual version of events.

Back to the OP. If it's a ban for a trading offence, the reason is likely to be left visible in the thread. Should it be for other reasons, e.g. offensive posts, then I'd say that these are likely to be removed. Off the top of my head, I can't think why we would intentionally highlight the reasons for a member being banned other than to satisfy persons curiosity.
#30
ASB you made a mistake and missed the scammer. You cannot blame me for that either.
I am just making people aware that the forum is not safe. I have all contact info for anyone I trade with. When they then cancel the number theres not a lot we can do :)

Maybe neither of us are to blame and a better system is required.

Thank you for your response anyway. I've been a mod on another forum so know the difficulties.
#31
Lots of Forums ban IP addresses & so can this site,but for some unknowing reason don't.
I like how you also turn the scam in to the buyers fault & you as a Mod know like I & others do that even following the rules you can get scammed.It's the Net & you will also be at risk buying from someone you don't know.
The buyer is most probably angrier that this same scammer has scammed on here many many times & is probably still doing it as I type on this same site.
After all you openly admit you can't do anything to stop them unless reported.

Why are HUKD's not using the same software as other sites use to ban IP Addresses ?

We didn't miss it, nor did we make a mistake. We acted as soon as it had been brought to our attention. The forum is pretty safe, with the members actively policing it, however we can only reiterate the fact that it's a members decision to trade, whilst we will continue to monitor and respond as appropriate 24/7/365.

As for recovery, the changing of a phone number shouldn't prevent you from obtaining a recovery.

Are you trying to look smart or just stupid ?
The guy said he contacted paypal & ebay & passed on the info from that thread to try & stop me from getting a refund.
You may be happy with Multi name users abusing you & telling lies about you to other people out with HUKD's site then that's fine,but I'm not fine with it & took the guys words as a threat......You OK with that ?

Hmmm, supposing I was just stupid, I'd have some way to go to catch you up in that regard. I'd need to create quite a few multi's in order to spread the stupidity around.... IHey!! What a great idea!!! Then I can start posting in threads and see all the gullible users believe everything I tell them!!! ;)

You do know what the word Threat mean do you ?
If your not sure can you please look-up the word then report back here to this thread & enlightin us all.

I'm looking forward to your next meaningless post & if you forget I'll even PM you to remind you.
