Announcement Re user names

Hi members
I have been dealing with new registered members that have inappropriate user names here on orchidgeeks.

Any porn related user names will have there IP ( Internet Provider ) address and Email Address blocked and the account deleted asap.

Any other inappropriate user names or email address will have the account deleted. asap

there is no need for that sort of stuff here on orchidgeeks and will not be tolerated.

thank you all
Fred

Hi Fred.
wonderfull, this is the best site I have ever been a member on.
No harvesting of your email address every time you send or reply to a message , then get spammed for the next six monts or so.
Very well done Fred.
Cheerio
Ron

I saw that Ana porn address last night and was wondering how long I'd see that name up here. I have to admit, I was laughing to myself......

You go get 'em Fred!

When I see this sort of thing I'm reminded of a cartoon from years ago... possibly B. Kliban. The drawing was not captioned (none required), but showed a chimpanzee typing away at a computer keyboard having a "chat" with some guy with a sleazy smile on his face.

Just remembering that always makes me smile.

it must be the time of year or something--another board i'm on (VERY small, VERY few users) has been getting hit with spam just about EVERY day. you have to sign up on this thing and wait for the approval email--i can't imagine what the spammers are thinking; all that trouble for a couple dozen users? --who report them as soon as we see them??

I didn't notice any porn user names. Hummm, then again it probably would have flew right past me. Great job Fred! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this forum. I was lucky to stumble on to it.
