Sadly, Bibs, I agree. I sent Tony a request regarding this individual.

If you are new to this site, please make chess-related comments in the openings section or the general chess section before making social comments in the chat section. If you start with social comments, they risk being deleted even if they are otherwise acceptable.

This is a chess site. If you want a social networking site, try something else.


I suggest the new idiot-spammer be removed. Thanks.

There's a simple answer: they are spammers trying to make 5 posts so that they can then put images in their posts (there's an anti-spammer setting that stops them adding images immediately).
There is more about this in the 'Reason for a ban' thread - at least there the spam was chess-related!
Just delete these silly posts and get me to delete the spammer. Smiley

Why are e.g. Lance Park and karlaturner08 making completely non-chess related posts, polluting chess threads in the process? Surely that's not in the spirit of the forum.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
