Hello all.

As you're probably unaware, Danphil has recently been banned by big bad Will who felt I needed a indefinate ban because I disagreed with a moderator.

In this e-mail he stated:


Further to my previous e-mail, you have now been banned from ePHOTOZine,

Please note that as per Section 128 of the Communications Act 2003,
regarding persistent misuse of an electronic communications network or
electronic communications services, we will be forced to notify the
relevant authorities should you try to use ePHOTOzine again.

Kind regards,


The part I'm most interested in is -

Quote:we will be forced to notify the
relevant authorities should you try to use ePHOTOzine again

Does this mean you'll be calling the revelant authorities now? I've been happily using ePHOTOzine for the last two days and of course, you being so thick haven't actually realised.

Will the Police be rung?

The Web FBI?

I'm just curious to know what will happen, that's all.

Cheers, DANPHIL.

If anyone wonders what's going on here - we have an immature user who's found the site and caused problems twice.
If he'd not
- Insulted other members
- Ignored our guidelines
- Swore
- Ignored our warnings
he'd still be allowed to use the site
It was my decision to ban him as he's had ample warning. This is the second time we've taken action.

I think it is a valid question that has been put here, if we make threats we have to be able to substantiate them - its a bit like telling a naughty child they will get no more sweets if they misbehave and then giving them the sweets anyway.

I have no knowledge of the incident that caused the issue, probably something quite innocuous, but that is not the point in question.

With all due respect, if we told you everything about what this member actually has done on several occasions you wouldnt be fighting his corner. He has been given several warnings and some of his antics have been downright spiteful and abusive to other members. Banning members is never, ever taken lightly. Believe me when I say this was more than justified. Having as many moderators on the site as we do, trouble is often interrupted before it can cause widespread damage, in this case it was so too. The number of abuse error reports and upset in the forums has dimished as a result.

Bob, we can quite easily follow up that threat. It's not one we issue lightly and have done so only twice before in the five years we have been running the site.

And I guess at this point this thread really should be locked. It's been dealt with and no further discussion surely is needed.
