    Hi...joined last month and received this e-mail today....
    Not sure if I have put it in the correct place but just want everyone to be aware and not to respond to this e-mail if they were to receive it too...

    Hi Carly,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'll look in to this right away, but for now, I'd just suggest ignoring it and any more you might get like this.

    Regards,
    Jenni

    I can't take the credit really. I merely suspended him pending confirmation from the admin team, and they have did the actual banning.
    So, its thanks to Carly for pointing it out and thanks to the admins for making the chop.

    As a forum, this may happen from time to time,so point it out if it does and one of the mods will act on it.
