Default Concern re: newer member

I wish to advise that the home page of whascuddish is a porn site. I am pretty upset about the fact that I clicked the homepage. Please do something about him. Thanks.

Thank you Thomas for drawing this to our attention. This user has now been banned permanently so they cannot use their current credentials to access this site again.

I have checked the user: "whascuddish" and they had joined on 14th December (although their last activity was this morning at 01:29 am) but the account was still awaiting e-mail confirmation.

Straight away I noticed the e-mail address was suspicious as there is a spammer who always uses a "z" as a separator in their e-mail addresses.

I ran a standard check on the account and the user's e-mail address: angelzswift@hotmail.com has been reported as a spammer 164 times and the user's IP address: "91.210.104.45" has been reported 200 times so far on the Stop Forum Spam website (http://www.stopforumspam.com/).

WhoIs 91.210.104.45

I'm sure that Mir Telematiki Ltd and its staff are aware of their IP subnet being used for spam, it is clear that this has been on-going unchecked for some time, even though they will have been notified of each complaint!
While a user's account is still awaiting e-mail confirmation they cannot send e-mails nor post anything on the forum. The only way you can see their details is while their name appears on the "Who's Online" page (http://forum.arian-catholic.org/online.php) while they are logged in. If they fail to confirm their e-mail address after a month then their account will be pruned. Once an e-mail address is confirmed then each account's details are then checked for spam reports and there are several methods of doing this. A spammer will often use a username, e-mail address or an IP address for several different forums, so even if they haven't been picked up yet they usually still stand out as suspicious in an internet search.

Of course occasionally, some spammers will still find a way in, and they have no shame, and they are no respecter of whether the forum is for children, a church, a charity or anything else! These people are driven by profit, greed, malice and perversion. Ultimately their actions and thought processes are controlled by evil and so they blinker themselves so that they are oblivious and hard hearted.

The sad thing is that these people are supporting prostitution, child abuse and slavery. And where does this money go as it is passed up the chain? Ultimately they are supporting drugs, which fuels crime (including: drug abuse, child prostitution, fraud, theft, muggings, burglary, GBH and murder), and they are also supporting terrorism!

Therefore if anyone does spot anything untoward or suspicious then please do report it straight away and we can lock them down quickly.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. You are absolutely right with what you say regarding these individuals. Sometimes it seems that darkness is forever trying to creep in where there is light. I will remain vigilant while visiting the forums.
