The modern civility allows people to be ignorant, rude and self absorbed. At my age the "forum" is still relatively new, but I am astonished at some of the posts I've seen.
Glad there are so many helpful people around as well...

A new week, a new post complaining about the forums.

one account tied to PayPal/Credit card, no alts




Irony, that you are responding to a new alt of an account, the very complaint you are making in your response. 😀

And Kudo'd by a 3 time banned user.



Hell if I were Fasttech Id ban every last one of us here in these repetitive complaint threads about FT's CS







And with the usual complete lack of irony shelagh complains about people complaining about alts and spam.


Absurd.

What's the worst that could happen...?

Stop Lying!

I did not complain of alts or spam.

I LOL'd at your complaint of alt accounts as you favourably replied to a new alts first post, about alts and then you were kudo'd by a 3 time banned member who has also just Kudo'd your last post. :D

Look, everyone knows there is a problem....this is a thread astutely pointing it out. Perhaps we could avoid bickering amongst ourselves and pointing fingers at each other in yet another thread? How would that be?
I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

Exactly!

I, concur.

I am presented with "create an account in 15 seconds" desktop/firefox.

Bottom line: Is all too easy create a new account that gives any obnoxious c*** license to post anything, anywhere.

Off topic should be for verified customers only.

At any rate, twice a minute is WAY too fast. It should be e-mail verified with confirmation code at the least. Any time limits set for signups per IP perchance?

I know, this is a pre-rolled e-commerce solution, with generic forums as a tacked-on bit. Probably ancient phpBBb based code. If they were running XenForo this wouldn't happen. Just 2-3 people could Admin this whole site easily. Let CS staff be CS, eh?

I know that the old admins are gone, I miss Geek and Sulfie, but some human has to be maintaining the server now. Surely someone at FT is web-savvy enough to Admin a damn forum? The Chinese have been taught English in middle school for many years now, there is no excuse.

Trust me, I could Admin and many people here would not like it if I did. I don't have much mercy. I'd ban entire subnets. I also agree that only paying customers should have the right to even see the forums signup link. Just a checkbox on a decent forums script's permissions. ;-)




Being a member of the forums is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. Ya can order shit or submit tickets and not ever post here at all, most folks do.

I ordered lots of stuff here from mid-2012 on without ever signing into forums. I only joined to hang with peeps after I left ECF.
