I won't repeat the news, but did PressCoverage break the TOS by posting that?

It was a a guy impersonating PressCoverage, not him. He had a period after his name and only one post.

It was not Press Coverage. It was Press Coverage. (with the period on the end of the user name).

If PressCoverage posted that, it wouldnt be against TOS...

However, PressCoverage. Posted that...

Notice the period on the end of the name and his first post coming today...

It was quickly recognized as a fake, user was banned, and the post removed...

I don't think it was the real PressCoverage. He had a period after his name, the poster joined today, and it was his first post. Doesn't look like it was real.

With that kind of eye for detail, I think you'd make a good Moderator...

Wow, kudos guys. Way to catch it right away, I know I didn't notice it was a fake...but I'm not all that familiar with the real PressCoverage except when he came on and broke some kind of news without a link and got blasted by the vets then he turned out to be right...

likely was some coward who got burned when my original thread came to fruition...

i tell you, there were some really vindictive forkers out there when that all went down... and i held a few accountable when they overstepped... some who are lacking in the groin area tend to need to make up for their deficiency by being unaccountable punks on a message board...

i assure you, i am not the kind of person who will ever post fraudulent information... if any of my stuff ever DOES happen to be untrue, it was beyond my knowledge when i heard about it...

In the famous words of Eddie Murphy (back when he was still kinda funny):

"Wasn't me"

Thanks to the mods for cleaning that clever little man who was impersonating me. Probably some current member who wanted revenge for whatever by getting someone in trouble.

Anyhoo... I just wanted to state for the masses: You have my word I will not knowingly post fraudulent information.

And to you, little man, who impersonated me ... I'm truly flattered... And you're awesome... :cooldude:

Did I miss something? What was the title of the thread w/ the impersonator? The only posts I remember of yours was the one about Will Poole when every was putting you down for only having a handful of posts when you started the thread and I believe the other one was about Timbo possibly retiring/being released.

The thread was up in the afternoon and was deleted about 5 minutes later. Better not to discuss the content, so we don't give the imposter what he wanted, attention.

The trouble with most folks isn't so much their ignorance, as knowing so many things that ain't so. :lol:

not sure bout the problem in this post

but in his debute he made an amazing news post on here that stated will poole would be out for the season yet it wasnt posted anywhere until 24 hours later. about 90% of the members that posted in the 8 page thread called the guy a troll and said why should they believe someone who has 3 posts. Anyway he told everyone he has an inside source and he was definitely 100% right on with his breaking news!

"PressCoverage" is the real deal. Someone registered as "PressCoverage." (with a period at the end) and started a false rumor. Still want to know what the rumor was. Anybody want to say?
