Don't mind the cliche title.

Here are some links to "Guides" that have been posted in the last couple days, about 6 by the same member.

Ok, sure he wrote them. But it's OBVIOUS he didn't write them here.
From the Soundcard guide(The last one posted) to the CPU Guide(First one) there is an interval of 10 minutes. So he obviously copied them. But he wrote them, I don't have proof of where he copied them from, maybe his computer. And if that's the case can we warning him from copying off his computer? He states it took him years to compile the data, there isn't nearly enough to consume more then 1day per guide, in my opinion.

And if he didn't write it, he could have copied off of various sites. Any help here? For now I'll leave it be, but I'm considering a suspention. and a removal of hosting. It seems proper.

So ignore the PM. They are sections of a previously posted Topic right here at the Trap and I can't find a significant difference bewteen the Originals and the New ones, except it appears that he took the one posting and chopped it up then re-posted individual Topics. I'll suspend.

Hmmm those posts did look suspicious, but I couldn't put my finger on it at the time. But after checking it out myself:

30 days is not enough he did cheat the system by recopying is own posts so I call it a instant ban at the mod level and maybe a ban at admin level as well.

But could work on sniffing him out you two.

I make the changes to his account for that.

Ummmm, let me see. Member had 88 credits after making all those posts. I moved them to Spam and then they still had 88 credits, so I reversed the credits using the adjustment script and they had minus 127 or like that. I imagine the account is gonzo'd by now since the account authorization script runs approx. every hour. So the suspension is a moot point, I guess. But that would work, too.*edit*Yup, no longer 'Hosted' status.
