    G/day fellas just thought I'd let you know that I got this in my in box today from a "roberttony" who's a "member" on here.
    I reckon it's a scammer as he hasn't posted anything on here going on his profile.
    Just thought I'd alert everybody to this bloke, regards

    It's a scam. You'll find, to your regret, the only money

    here is what they can con you into sending them.

    They also go for all your personal information, so

    they can steal your ID.

    They work out of non-extradition countries, so

    they can't be imprisoned for fraud.

    The elderly, who recently got computers,

    are especially at risk, so monitor mom and dad.:(

    Ladies and gentlemen- Roberttony is no more- alas.

    And he is not a member here- alas. (Scott and Jon breaking in new Bannhammers)

    He was a spammer. They show up here now and gain. We have a guy that sprays for them, but they are quite persistent.

    He has been banned, and if he shows up again, we'll ban his ISP. If that does not work, we'll block his country.

    If that does not work, we'll send Robo to get medieval on them.....

    Note to HairBear- and any of our other new folks-

    If you get a private message or see postings like this- they are spammers, scoundrels, thieves, blackguards, muggers and buggers, bunco artists, confidence men, and idiots- since it is not wise to mess with a group of people that love GUNS. But I digress.

    Do NOT respond to them- that tells them they have a valid email connection. NEVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE open ANY ATTACHMENT- unless you enjoy trying to remove viruses, worms, and trojans from your computer.:cool:

    However, if you look over at the bottom left of a thread, you will see an exclamation mark in a white triangle. THAT is the icon used to report a post to the Moderators. The message you send goes to all of us that are Mods. It can also be used for trolls, flamers, and posts that are simply completely inappropriate. We usually whack them with a large hammer, but sometimes we get lazy, and run them thru the wood chipper.:D

    Please note that having your feelings hurt does not in and of itself become our problem- there are several people in this world that I AM responsible for their happiness. YOU are not one of them. :eek:

    Someone that is in a screaming, cursing, fight-picking mode will not be permitted to post. But if you ask my opinion of the RG revolver you bought for only $200, and I tell you they are junk and only worth about $10- THAT is not a problem for Mods. :rolleyes:

    Hammer? What happened to the hamster? Did someone forget to feed him?! :eek:

    Damned people from PETA were complaining about the BannHamster. Something about damaging his hearing when we used the mini-gun.

    Have you ever tried to find ear muffs that will fit a hamster?
