If you don't want any spam or anything... I recommend you remove yourself from the internet, because any information shared on anything is accessible, just because an account is created somewhere doesn't mean spambots and other sniffers don't have access to it.

Nice answer!

The whole reason I brought this up was that either the forums user database had been compromised or that there was an exploitable flaw in the forum software allowing none admins to spam the entire user database.

Any forum I sign up to I sign up with a unique email address so that when I do receive spam I know exactly where my info has been sold/stolen/or exploited and so that I can report it to the forum ADMINS.

I see several forum users complaining of similar activity... so as a moderator if you so choose to brush it off in the manner that you have chosen to that is fine as well. As an ADMIN of a site a simple response of "we don't sell" doesn't cut it.

Please don't speak to me like I'm some kind of idiot or novice user...

Thank You!

Sir I'm not sure what to tell you, but ANYTHING on the internet can be used by ANYONE.

Admins say they haven't sold anything, I have email addresses that I've never used once and they get spam mail.

There is nothing that can be done for you, sorry you feel this way, but it's just as common as getting junk mail in your mailbox.

I'm a moderator, I ban users, I can't fix things.

If an admin is reading this thread I would like my account deleted from these forums. As I definitely no longer wish to have my username associated with this family of sites in any shape or form.

Unfortunately I don't have the ability to "delete" user accounts.

I will contact an admin and see what can be done.

Sorry you feel this way, but I'll see what I can do.

Dude, you need to calm your shit!

Its not the forums, its not nuse, its that email addresses just get spam emails.

There are computers that JUST run all types of different special programs(in dumbed down terms haha) that just constantly look and find email addresses to send spam too. And 9/10 times. Those computers run it through the emails central databases. As in hotmail and Gmail, etc.

And the other 1/10 aaaare porn links you click on!!

So its either your email you are using. Or the porn sites you look at haha, Even the reputable ones.

Calm my shit??? Thank you so much for your absolutely amazing and wonderful dumbed down description of a web crawler harvesting emails from webpages.

ahahahahahhahahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahahaahahaha hhahahahahhaha
