Hi,I'm new here, how's it going?"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein---Jeannettehttp://www.< edit >.com/ < edit >

Same member and I've put Jeanette on my ignore list too. It's a shame that this is going on :banghead . I never thought I'd ever have to put anyone here on that list :cry .

Janna Galaxy 01-27-2008 04:28 PM

Yep, I got it too.

Okay folks,
I'm a moderator, but until now I didn't realise I had sufficient access rights to deal with this!

I've banned "Jeannette" for a day, and passed your complaints (which I've also had from others via pm) on to Brian.

On behalf of Al's Place I'd like to apologise for this disruption to the normal service, and I'm sure Brian will have it dealt with soon.

yasmin 01-27-2008 07:21 PM

I got one of those today, too

Sorry guys - I have the user banned permanently now. I try to look carefully at each membership submission before approving, but some spammers really make themselves look legit.

Thanks for the heads up everyone and for understanding!

Sherminator 01-30-2008 05:29 PM

i got 2, one from the infamous Jeanette, and one from Ray2007, however, I cannot access my PM's to quote the last one.

alsplacebartender 01-30-2008 07:15 PM

You now have to post at least 5 times on the forums before being allowed to pm. This is to try and help stop the spammers.

I guess this is why I cannot access private messages. I'm still too new. -- Hello!

That's true - just join in the conversations about three more times and you'll be able to private message. :)
