spot has reported a post.

Reason:FG's T&C prohibit anyone from posting to FG through a proxy. This chap has a VPN into the Digitalocean US cluster. Are we still bothered? We used to be bothered because we were being infested with the likes of JJ and others popping open new accounts and fooling members here into talking to him with their habitual JJ shields down.

I've asked for a comment from him:



I'm a moderator.

I've posted a query within the system which says:

"FG's T&C prohibit anyone from posting to FG through a proxy. This chap has a VPN into the Digitalocean US cluster. Are we still bothered? We used to be bothered because we were being infested with the likes of JJ and others popping open new accounts and fooling members here into talking to him with their habitual JJ shields down. "

If you have any comment on your need for anonymity I'd be interested to hear it.

There are times I come in through a proxy.

It's indicative of a problem but not a problem in itself.

I'd leave it as a T&C cause for banning but not ban based solely on that evidence.

Comments?

I had a peep on Google Earth, using the Long/Lat. and there's a very interesting address at that point - Naijabizcom Ventures, Lagos, Nigeria. I have further address details if required, including a telephone number !
