Fake Report "Abuses"

Post by Derri on Tue 27 Aug - 18:13

So I've been reading today about forums receiving report abuses that are false.

I too today have one and I'm quite concerned that someone is going around Forumotion forums and hitting the "Report Abuse" button and sending false reports to the administrators of the sites.



I mean I have nothing on my forum that is copyrighted and I feel that this issue needs to be raised as someone is evidently going around and submitting false reports.

I mean if anyone wants to take a look around my forum, my forum link is on my profile at the side. I don't think I have anything copyrighted.

Well violating the terms of service is a little different than what I'm talking about. Does what you got look like what I have in my first screenshot?

Yeah the reason I asked was because if it was something official by forumotion then I didn't want you to be under the impression it wasn't something serious as a warning issued via the ACP by Forumotion is usually for something serious whereas this isn't.

Troll. Just ignore that. And wait for someone from staff there. They maybe know.

I think we need stronger security defences to disallow certain people, probably through IP address from using this, as I received two false reports on that day.
