    I have to admit I was always attracted to the 'help me' threads too, but they help no one else who does a search for the same issue.

    So its best not too answer them, or at least direct them to this thread or the forum rules at best.

    Most people should read forum rules when joining, but sad to say, that most don't.

    I would just like to apologize to you and to whoever else I offended. I was unaware of that rule and am sorry for being rude. I promise that it will never happen again. Have a good day

    I've no idea what to do with that, haven't seen that section of the site before. I think i saw a comment from dRD about it the other day, i have a feeling it's a section only the Admins can access at the moment. Good job really, going by the link you posted :)

    admin's idea. anonymous posters can only post in news section & tech support. don't like that idea because of spammers.

    just trying to script the bots to take advantage of it now.. ;) new signup is easier than the old one as well.. not as many blocked bad spam email domains as there were.

    not going to let them post actual spam.. jut a post saying "spam" will no doubt make the point.. it is a pretty good idea sometimes having a honeypot black hole to catch heaps of bots, but proper spammers will always register to post so they can post everywhere, I built my spamlist of types of bot name from a similar spamtrap a long time back XD

    If I want to get my thread back do I need to PM you about it or can I post it again under a different title?

    Being as you're here now, just fix the thread title and post back here and it'll be reopened.
