SPAM.

Chaps,

We've just deleted our newest member, 'steventech' for posting a simply commercial, non-NBTV item here in 'Marketplace'. I'm sure that some of you saw it in the last 24 hours or so and I hope there was no communication with said user. Whatever, I would cease right now.

The user has been banned via username and e-mail address, IP adress as well should he resurface. His account has also been deleted.

First time as I'm aware this has needed to be done.

Heavy-handed it might seem, put to keep the garbage out it's needed.

Yes, I saw it Steve, it was disgusting. The idea that someone would react on it..... Mobile telephones are almost free here in NL. You pay for the monthly fee, not for the phone.

Having said this you might delete these messages as well. Then the situation as before returns.

Regards, Klaas

I'll keep these messages here as a warning to those considering doing the same, not current members but those thinking of joining just to place SPAM. They know it will be deleted promptly and they will be banned...a waste of effort on their part.

As the header says "NBTV related", which I would extend to old(er) technologies either mechanical or electronic, say at least prior to 1980 (that's almost 30 years ago!). I don't think mobile phones fall into that classification.

Actually I would like to see a software for my mobile phone, that converts pictures from the built-in camera into NBTV. Then I need of course an NBTV-player software... :lol:

Some years ago I did suggest using a mobile phone as a display device, it's an ideal size. But the gubbins and software required would be quite a challenge!

This perhaps this should be continued in the usual NBTV section.

We already have the Java-based NBSC player. It should theoretically work on a mobile phone.

I did try it but it on an old phone and though it did work it only managed about 1 frame every 10 seconds. On a newer phone it may be better. My .Net player should be portable to quite a lot of phones too.

Back on the subject of Spam / advertising would it be worth setting up a thread or section for discussing general suppliers as well as specialist suppliers. I'm sure I often pay over the odds for things!

Another one bites the dust.

Postby Steve Anderson » Sat May 09, 2009 2:22 pm

Another one bites the dust....'shoppers' has been banned and postings deleted.

When will they wake up to the fact that unless a mobile phone is at least a tri-bander they just won't work in Europe or the rest of the world outside of the USA...we only have a handful of US members....who of course are very welcome here....unless they try to sell us useless phones which are usually provided free with a service contract outside of the US.

Before I delete/ban them I send them an e-mail along the lines of..."Turd, you've been banned!"

Steve A.

P.S. Anyone know of an automated spammer that just repeatedly sends out e-mail and clogs up their in-box? I know I might be stooping to their level, but there might be some satisfaction in it.

The iPhone works very well in Europe, but is quite useless without a contract with a provider who sells the iPhone, otherwise it's just an expensive common telephone. And then again, it is not the telephone, which is expensive, it's the contract. And with the "right" contract an iPhone costs almost nothing...

But in this forum are so many elderly people, I wonder why nobody tries to sell us Vi... :lol:

Yes, surprising that product hasn't 'arisen', but I have a plentiful supply here anyway!

As I'm becoming a member of the "Old Farts Brigade", I could do with a supply of anti-flatulence medication...frogs with chilli are the worst...If my wife and I go out to dinner and I have frogs with chilli she spends the night downstairs on the sofa...possibly more data than you guys need...

...and yet another one bites the dust...'BESTSELLER' has been banned for SPAM again selling US phones to mainly Europeans. Moron. And would you buy something from someone with only a .yahoo.com e-mail address? Not me.

So another SPAM merchant is banned, same guy as last time just joined under a different name...he's toast.

...and he's a cheapskate! libero.it (his ISP) is a freebie, nothing wrong with free email...but in business?

delete anything from:-

mobiletechnology@libero.it

....hopefully the spambots will find the above...
