    Good job. I was sort of having fun with them on other already deleted threads.

    I'm thinking we won't be booking tickets to Stockholm to watch him (or her) pick any prizes.

    You know, I have never seen this type of thing work on forums that require an email address to post (I.E. registration). It seems that this would make monitoring and policing this crap much easier. This seems reinforced by the fact that the dude only posts under guest status. Food for thought.

    It's good that it's being dealt with today rather than tomorrow like we all suspected, but ....

    What's to stop this guy from getting back on here within an hour with a new user name like he did the other day?

    I set up a letter in my Email program and then sent a copy of it to the advertisers on this site. Some had 800 numbers.. so I called them. I know it is Sunday, but when they get the messages on Monday morning... Here is what I sent to the advertisers via email. I pretty much repeated it verbatim on the phone.

    There has been a problem at Firehouse.com with a racist who logs in under multiple screen names and then posts racist cartoons and statements in the forums there.

    Do you want your firm to be associated with this?

    Let Firehouse.com and Cygnus know that they have to put a stop to it now!
    I have noticed that the offending posts are pretty much gone (I went off line around 1:00 PM EST).

    Webteam: you have to keep up on this!

    That should get some attention I hope.

    Stooping to his infantile level just keeps him coming back.

    Our resident roll is using "guest" access. You can't set "guest" posts to ignore because they aren't really registered.

    Sad part about this whole incident is that the webteam may have deleted his posts, but they haven't addressed the security issue... PATHETIC.

    Lets see what happens.

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://forums.firehouse.com">

    Looks like they fixed it the HTML problem.

    Now, it seems they are still operating under the radar screen since they haven't said a word about what happened.

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
