I need some help from all members!!

By Bill Cassada ·
I'm posting this here because I don't know how else to get everyone's attention at once...

BLK_CZR and LEON have managed to circumvent the points system. Not only have they done this, but they have gone the extra step of setting up additional accounts in my name and then using them to harrass me and God only knows who else.

Just to set the record straight, the following names are NOT mine:

The ONLY -- repeat ONLY -- member name I use on TechRepublic is the one you see used here to post this. Any messages or email or distasteful posts you see using any name similar to mine are NOT from me.

If you have also been a victim or just want to voice an opinion about this I encourage you to either contact me directly and/or the editor of TechRepublic. We all work our butts off to help those in real need. We don't need this behavior on this site.

Again, sorry to vent here, but I feel a need to have widest possible dissemination on this.

Thanks for listening!

Hi Bill,

This is not the first time someone has figured out how to bypass the point system. There were two others recently, and Tech Republic did respond to my complaints, but this is the first time I've heard of that someone tried identity theft. I'm sure TR will deal with it severely once we get their attention.

For the record, I read your posts and find you a valuable member of this forum.

I have seen others circumvent the point system. When I have seen it, I have gone to the "contact us" link at the bottom of Techrepublic page and let Techrepublic know. They will investigate, and, if true, will delete the violators account.

I'm new to this forum but, it really pisses me off that poeple are circumventing the point system. Also, I'd like to think we are all professionals who subscribe to this forum. Its upsetting to know others are treating such a valuable resouce as some stupid web chat forum. Save your identity theft for he chat rooms (you know what i mean?) I pay tech republic for a service not a Jerry Spinger show.

In addition those of you who get a reponse which works and you reject it so you can keep your points are just helpless desk individuals who use your CD_ROM trays as cup holders becuase your too stupid to realize the grief someone saved you from.

I feel you pain Bill. Just stay professional and keep the end users happy bro.

Thanks for the positive responses. For those who are actually interested in the points...I'll award them after some more responses are received. Publicity sometimes does help.

Again, thanks to everyone!
