    Some bugger has registered to this site using my email address and I recieved these emails

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Then I got another email

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    And then finally this one

    Dear ----------,

    Unfortunately your registration at Audi-Sport.net did not meet our membership requirements. Therefore your registration was deleted.

    Sorry,
    Audi-Sport.net
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now my concern is that whoever registered using my email address and a user name from another site that i use may have posted anything they liked, like paedophile stuff ( im not searching that for the right spelling )
    I have emailed the site admin asking for the IP address and internet provider of the person that successfully registered on here so that I can report them to there provider, does anyone know if this is possible and would the IP actually do something about it.

    Cheers for any advice

    They usually operate a wee bit of security on most forums so that you can't register unless you have access to the email account i.e. a link sent to the account holder that you have to click on to get full access. I honestly thought that was the case on here but it's been soo long since I registered I couldn't remember.

    It might be worth changing all your passwords for email, forums etc. Just to be on the safe side.

    Because im wearing my special bainsyboy boxer shorts whilst looking at the special hidden photo thread that tdi dan posted in theTT forum.
    Admin have been in contact I reckon it was when I kept getting banned and then registered with are we there yet as apparently the site has gone over to new servers and some users accounts got deleted and had to re apply im sure I reckon i got banned with that username, but after the server change got sent the reactivate account and then the system has flagged that user up as being banned and er banned me again :jester:

    just to say no one has been banned, he had registered another account which never got activated.....we purged a lot of accounts that we knew were spam. This fired off an email saying the account hasnt been approved.

    The next time we are laying down the law on spelling and grammar, can we include mixed metaphors? :lmfao:
