What is the rules on passing out email accounts of your users?

Post by soonermark890 on December 22nd 2010, 7:21 am

I was a member of ninjasplace. I left there and created my own forum. Now he has asked several of his members to spam my email and passed out my email account. I am just wondering what is the rules about this?
Thank you in advance.

Hello & Welcome!

Hello and welcome.

Because you are new, here are useful links where you can look for answers :

Arrow General Rules
Arrow Frequently Asked Questions
Arrow Tricks & Tips
Arrow Forumotion TOS
Arrow Contact Typlo for a Domain Transfer Code/for other severe problems
Arrow Lost your Founder password?
Arrow Complaint against a forum
Arrow Maximum Security for your forums

Arrow How to clear your cache

Arrow Forumotion Limits
ArrowWhy do we ask explicit titles?
Spoiler:
The forum's search engine bases its research on keywords found in topic titles.

When you do a research, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the researches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cordially
Forumotion Staff



If that forum is still alive, you can report them with the link I provided above(Complaint against a forum) with either cases, you will need to provide strong proofs:

* Hateful or abusive content
* Harmful and dangerous acts
* Spam

what exactly are they doing, sharing members email address so they can spam them.

Well if they are then they are obviously morons that dont know how to run a forum or be responsible.

I mean any good admin knows you never share any one's info or post it anywhere.. so if they are doing this to people then it wont be long until other members find out and members lose all respect for the admin and it's staff.

unfortunately you do not have access to the mods section then there is no way to get a screen shot.

but you have the option in your profile preference not to recive emails, if they are changing that, then just report that the admin keep changing you setting that you do not want to receive emails and get screen shots of the spam they are sending you,Be sure you get the link in the screen shot to.

But thats about all i can suggest at this time.


Info added
got your pm.


Tell them your want your account deleted.
then if you keep receiving spam save all the spam messages in your spam folder,get a screen shot of that, then get a screen shot of the spam thats in the message as well.

Be sure the forums link of where the spam is being sent from is visible, then you can report it to litigations of excessive spamming from the forum.

I'm in the exact same situation Soonermark is in. Ninja wants his mods to spam our e-mail and report us on our forums. He has banned me but wont delete my account even though I asked him about 5 times to do so before he banned me.

Wait for 24-48 hours, if they don't delete it, you can report their forum, it's their obligation to.

Well then why don't you file a complain? There isn't much we can do because we don't have the power to do anything with illegal things or problems with forum with users.

Can I get a little help with the screenshot. I know this is a dumb question but it keeps giving me this error when I try it.

Wrong picture (jpg, gif and png allowed)

I uploaded it to imageshack now what? Thank you very much in advance.

like mario said there is no use of posting this stuff here because we do not have anything to do with litigations, all staff here on forumotion support with the exception of typlo have nothing to do with litigations. it's a whole different staff anonymous group/onlineguardian that runs that.

So Send the screen shots to litigations like you did above or if you like you can pm it to typlo.
but i think you would be better off sending it to litigations,because there is no telling when typlo would get the message especially with x-mas weekend and all.

If you like send the admin the link to this post here and the link above that says by law if someone request to have their account deleted then he has to, or it would be a violation.

But other then that i will leave room for one more reply then i will lock this because once again we do not deal with threads such as this here on forumotion support.
