    Re: Hi everybody

    Only if you post nothing about yourself or video games, and limit your posts to generic answers which could apply to any blog or forum anywhere...

    I just want to point out that this isn't a fool-proof way of linking someone to attacks or spam in the slightest.
    That is all.

    Re: Hi everybody

    I didn't ban him because I couldn't be 100% sure, but it's not the first time I've seen spammers like this.

    They usually post very general things in random threads, then weeks/months later add spam link in their signature.
    They're basically creating a "cover" from being banned at first, then hope on not being seen by the admins anymore as the posts are buried within older threads.
    I'm guessing they're trying to get clicks from newcomers/google searches.

    If he is in fact one of the tiny percentage of:
    - Innocent video gamers,
    - who just happen to have a blacklisted email,
    - and a blacklisted ip,
    - and makes only generic posts,
    - and has an indian IP address. (Not that I think all indians are spambots, before someone points out that that isn't fool-proof either ).

    Then he can re-register and I will happily apologise

    Re: Hi everybody

    Not defending him, just wanted to point it out, not like his 'spam' was doing any harm anyways.
    Just playing devils advocate, really.
