    it has happened in the past (2x)
    ...but, not since software change

    I just tell 'em the usual
    'if you can ask me (privately), you can ask them (publicly)!!!'

    I get emails with people asking about problems. I just tell them to post on the forums.

    Hello,
    I'm new here and just wanted to say "hi"

    How's it going?

    "Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

    yup, that account has been banned. it had to be a human spammer because a bot can't do all that.

    don't know...i've not had that problem, nor would i expect to hear of it...problem is that tom's just left on a short vacation. i'm sure he'll want to know and will take care of it.
