You have to neg a post :P can't just neg someone. All rep is linked to a post so it can't get multiple lots of rep.

Some must have been deleted along the line somwhere :thinking:

How did he contact you?
Via phone or via here?

Plus assuming hes a member here why wouldnt he contact a mod?

Confused....

No posts = No ability to neg rep is what i think sean's getting at

could it be he has no rep, not neg, is that not the colour everyone starts with?

blue square means member hasnt gained any rep (+ or -ive)

He's in the blue? Or did people start with less than the standard 10 points (ie one green block) back in 05?

You havent given us any personal details while registering (other than email ID) and you havent posted here before. There is no way someone gathered your personal details via HUKD. Most likely someone is taking the mikey

BEN500 has only ever made 5 posts:-

I'm wondering if the OP had made a purchase from a website and that site stored their info, then this Benny person used that same site found their info and decided to contact the OP.

That's what I said at the start, the cookies or something must have remained stored :thumbsup:

I think it might have changed with the site upgrade in mid 2006?

Some started with a Green square when Admin was tweaking the rep system but usually new members start with clean slate

Looks like early stages of con to me ;-)

Could be he just looked up P Ebsham in online phone directories then called each one till he got a hit? Ex directory doesn't mean a huge deal these days.

So I've just checkout the registation process for myself...

All you need is a username, password and email address

There is no section for first number, or for your real name!

I think edi is right!
