As far as I'm concerned... let them post... until such time as they actually start on about CTFU, and they're posting relevant and interesting posts - so what???

 

It may surprise you, but most people actually have more than just one single interest in life!

expatlife26:

well when it comes to bruces I believe Boxleitner yes, Gorcyca no. I suppose that's a valid argument but that guy seems to actually be a criminal. Do you really want to support him canvassing for a sense of legitimacy when he starts posting in support of his scam?

Hey shining, I also want to say that I'm not opposed to this guy posting because he's repetitive or annoying or because I don't like the idea of a anti scam network.

 

Theres a good case that this guy is genuinely a criminal and operating an extortion scheme. There was a thread at the beijinger where one of his targets published the correspondence along with photos of CFTU guy who had previously worked there and was now offering to get all the bad reviews taken down by his hacker friend...for a fee of course.

 

So when he's posting things here, even if they are interesting, it's still part of the exortion scheme. Trying to look like a legit forum member. That's why I call for him being banned.

 

Icnif77 posts almost nothing but paranoid garbage but I've never called for him being banned because I bet he's a decent guy just a bit of a nutjob.

 

CFTU guy is a criminal...and we shouldn't help him out with any credibility

Well hey it looks like swirl, b4ugo and dragonbreath all are banned or at least their accounts are going to the access denied page.

 

If so thanks are due to admin for the quick response!

Hotwater:

Just checked and I can access the account pages of all 3 of those users.

That's weird, because I can access yours and others but not those three. Perhaps it's just a glitch that I attributed to bold admin action

I still have no idea what the STFU is nor do i know anything about the mysterious arch villain behind the curtain.....and at this point I'm afraid to ask

icnif77:

STFU is my 'nicky' for CFTU, 'cause at the time you could read about CFTU so often, I just had to rename it.

As usual I'm not sure what icnif is getting at, but good for him trying!

 

CFTU is like an extortion scam. Target a company and say a bunch of bad things on a website and posted on various forums. Charge to remove it.

CTFU can be bam or scam, but fact is, it can be run by one person from several computers.

Whatever I am concern, it can also be run by you, since you're keep 'advertising' it here.

Let me get into their 'business plan': 'Why would I pay for bad news about my Co. to be removed, if I can just change my Co.'s name?'

You won't see anywhere Helen Group is advertising jobs under the same name, because Internet is full of Helen Group Hangzhou bad reviews. But, believe me, they are still here. They just call themselves with diff. name.

 

Nobody, except you is that concerned about CFTU, but you don't realize, you are 'promoting' them by keep running your bla-bla about it.

 

 

Looking at your latest 'alert' .... How can CFTU harm posters at eTities? Extort what and how?

 .... I am not giving up my raincoats, you know that!
