    Alpha has gone via the backdoor through the Feedback forum to try & have me expulsed from the forum for spamming.

    I have included his post & my reply for your perusal.

    this site is being and has been being spammed by the poster RobBlack for some time.

    There comes a time where one posters rights to supposed 'freespeech' (even if that is only copying other peoples work) starts to impinge on the quality and purpose of this Hotcopper market forum.

    Surely enough people have complained about this that you might do something about it?

    I don't usually run to management or authority to try & resolve a personal matter.

    However, in this instance, as AlphaCenturian has chosen to 'run to mummy', may I suggest that AlphaCenturian's complaints about me are purely the machinations of his personal vendetta against me.

    To wit, he has accused me of spamming - a search would reveal that he has made more posts than I have today.
    Furthermore, a search would reveal that he has made more posts than I over any period of time that you would choose to view.
    Furthermore, a search of our posts would reveal that AlphaCenturian always instigates 'flaming posts' against me & others, & resorts to name calling on a regular basis.

    May I suggest that many posters have made more posts than I today & over any period of time that you care to choose - however AlphaCenturian targets me.

    I admit that today I made a post in the wrong forum, however, that was a one off & was done unintentionally, for which I apologised to the forum. You should also note that AlphaCenturian posted on that particular thread as much as I.

    It is my understanding that the 'General' forum is for members to post on any topic that they wish to choose - I have noticed that many members choose to do so, indeed some more than I - so why is it that AlphaCenturian chooses to single out me for attention? - I'll leave that up to your judgement.

    In conclusion - I average 4 to 5 posts per day - far less than my accuser - so judge for yourself - who is the spammer?
