  • Some people have too much time on their hands.

    What is it with some people? Even after pointing them to the thread about the "fake" vB team members trying to get customer numbers and such, they still try to convince me that they are the real deal by sending me a fake e-mail with a @vbulletin.com address. When will these people ever learn. ^_^

    [01:52 PM] 195500983: Hello Matthew, Do you have a minite I'm from vbulletin we need to clear something up.
    [01:52 PM] *** Auto-response sent to 195500983: I am currently away from the computer.
    [01:53 PM] 195500983: Sorry about that, it's my spam filter.

    [04:19 PM] 195500983: If i sent you a e-mail from vbulletin.com to prove my status would you be able to vertify your account for me?
    [04:20 PM] squall14716: o...k...
    [04:21 PM] 195500983: Okay cool.
    [04:21 PM] squall14716: for the record, I changed my password a while ago and no one has it but me, and no one is going to have it except for me, so... yeah

                Tsk tsk, Squall, you do realize now that you didn't verify your account Jelsoft is just going to cancel your status as a licensed customer.

                      I didn't know you had a spare license. May I use it, please? I won't do violate the license agreement, really.

                          This was the first time someone tried it, they're just lucky I didn't feel like torturing them today.

                              Now why would I want a UBB?
