    It could be the same guy that spammed us here yesterday. His first post mentioning a new website he had set up. Some people have no manners:Smile:

    :Rofl1: :thumb:
    Just anther nail in the other sides coffin for when my tenner is due :Rofl1::Wink:(I probably will pay up :Rofl1:)
    My thinking is that forums/advise are peoples ideas for free :thumb: and if you feel the advise is good then I don't mind making a contribution towards the up keep of the site which should be allowed for members to pass on links / opinions to other users--- after all it is only this site that is blocked---- they are always putting links on for the self builders web site and nobody objects to that :Rofl1: or maybe they don't want self builders on the (posh) site:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi Terry

    What do you call the posh site?. Surely most of us log on and read them all.

    I read the thread,

    the member was allegedly soliciting for members for a new site using PM and email .. it happens on all forums, this time someone reported it.

    the same rule applies on this site..

    Be aware..
    PMs on any forum can be read by admin..

    It's called a PM because other members don't see it..

    it's logged on the server so in theory it can be read by admin, I'm not suggesting that this is routinely done, only that it can be if someone reports misuse of the system .

    Hi I would think its also possible to put a "keyword" filter in, so say every PM that contained the word motorhomefun would be flagged up.

    Be careful big brother IS watching you. :Rofl1:

    On any forum, if you want to post links to similar forums you should get really permission from the admin before you do so.

    Its common sense that you should not "promote" one forum whilst on another. You can understand Facts position. Fun is, more or less, a clone of his site. Facts is run as a business and the owner would be foolish to allow the promotion, however obsure, of a similar site that is free, so you cannot blame them for banning the word fun:BigGrin:

    Re the PMs, On the system we use, your passwords and your PMs cannot be seen by admin.

    The guy on Facts was PMing other members telling them about another site. He was lucky he only got banned, do that here and we might send one of the boys around:BigGrin:

    Oh well, you can all tell I'm a newbie 'cos i have no idea what the 'dark side' is :BigGrin::RollEyes::Blush:

    As mentioned above this does happen all the time on forums, UK Workshop had a breakaway group that went off and started their own likewise Dogsey has had several breakaway groups, one of which caused me a lot of bother (Too long a story for here :BigGrin:)

    And yes, I somehow figuered that PM's can be read by Admin so I always avoid slagging off the moderators when using PMs. In reality 'tho the people who run these sites could not possibly read every PM so unless they are reported (Or the Police need to see them) there's more chance of me getting aseat on the next moon shot than anyone seeing my PMs :BigGrin:

    Kinda intrigued by this 'dark side' thing now 'tho :RollEyes:

    ETA _ Sorry Jim I didn't see your post above which if I read it right indicates that some system no one can read PMs but there may be some where the admin can. I didn't know that. Just for the record I can't think of any reason whatsoever why I would want to say anything in a PM that I would not say on the forum. I tend to use PM's just for chatting one to one with people about things which would be of no interest to the majority.

    I got banned from the Dark Side after I questioned Keith "Dismissal" and nicknamed it "The Dark Side" on here. Was told I was not the type of member they wanted. Ho Hum, their loss :Rofl1:

    Private messages must be stored in the database/server somewhere, I have no idea if they are stored in clear or encrypted like passwords. If someone has access to the database and knows how to interrogate it then I am sure that they could be read quite easily. Only me, Bryan and that recent hacker has access to our database so your secrets are quite safe - not:Smile:

    I'm sure you're right Jim, if only to enable retrieval following a request from the police or other authorised organisation (as per a previous post referring to t'other lot).

    Phew, wonder if the secret hacker was LindyC's old man checking on my PM's about cooking:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
