    I have never gotten a single email from them. If they are spamming you, report them to their ISP.

      Same here.. They spammed my with 2 mails..

      First was:
      Hi All, Just to let you know there is another new board for your hacks and mods.
      It will cover vb mybb yabb etc etc
      Pop over and say hi
      and the second was:
      Hi All

      New board open @
      Irc Efnet ##

      come along and say hi.
      also looking for new staff.
      Both were sent to an address I don't use at this forums.
      That's the end of that!

            Just checked the site, yes my name is registered there with zero postings, I did not register there and its the first I have heard of them

            One other thing I did notice was the number of members they have with the same amount of posts.....Zero which is strange

                  If it is a case of remote or local hacking other sites it is definetly illegal.

                    If they are distributing work from others without written permission, yes.

                    If they are the author of the resources they post on their web sites, no.

                    Note in case they read this: Nobody has permission to distribute what I made without my permission, which you just didn't get

                      I just received 2 of their emails, and returned a kind request to explain themselves on how they got my email address and to remove me from their list. Both emails bounced.

                      Therefor I've taken another 5 minutes of my time to contact their hosting provider and data center and report them for unsollicitated emailing.

                          North America
                          Lagos (Nigeria)
