I see what you mean, but wouldn't a cloak be something that wouldn't raise suspicion, like AOL, SBC? I mean, it's no cloak if it says I have no "host name" to hide under and i'm suspicious!


I dont understand what you mean, but it's moot now. I'm just waiting to see how long it takes spammers to realize they have somewher to post without registering, then maybe they won't bother us so much trying to register with nonsensical/porn/phamraceutical names from IPs in China, India or Kazakhstan...

Is your question "Are we banning genuine members again?" Or "Have genuine members been banned again?" What is the subject in that sentence? confused

We may have banned genuine members accidentally, but mostly we've been banning spammers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Israel (yes!), India and other countries unlikely to have a Vietnamese community, and a number of addresses in the USA with suspicious host names, or when caught in the act (i.e. being on line at the same time as one of the Admins) trying to register to advertise porn or pharmaceuticals.

Once again, if you're a genuine member and you're inadvertently banned, write LadyDragon/Wildflower at her personal address. Almost all genuine members have it. Those who don't are usually from the CoS forums, in which case they can send her a PM there. Her username on the CoS Forum is FleurduJardin.

If you're among the very few (less than 5 members, I'd think) who don't have LD/W's address, write to Administrator@AvenueViet.com or AvenueViet@yahoo.com, preferably the latter, that one is checked regularly.
