A user from 194.242.66.134 registered over a dozen extremely profane names, none of which with valid email addresses.

The IP is French. Please do not draw conclusions.

I have suspended registration and banned the user's class C address. In a few minutes, I am going to run another IP search. If anyone previously registered matches that IP or the traceroute, they will be banned from Flare for the forseeable future.

It's a long story which we won't get into right now.

I don't think it's related to SFA...

SFA? the only thing I can think of is Star Fleet Academy, and I can't figure out what Star Fleet academy would have to do with you not liking France? I'm totally confused and intrigued, somebody please tell me.

Well, the French were nice to me when i went there on holiday, so 'nuff respect. It's also the most accessible foreign tongue, IMHO. (OooH, that sounded a bit, RUDE didn't it?! )

CC: I agree with what you are doing, and would have done exactly the same if I were in your position. But my provider (Casema) is part of a French company (Wanadoo). Please take into account that it is possible that my 'route' comes from France.

It was a pun. Re-read his post again, carefully, and you'll catch it.

always end up saying "Don't forget the big heavy eyebrows." Then they would all get embarrassed because they remembered they had the big hunky eyebrows too, and then they would get mad and eat the snowman.

In case you still don't get it, note that he called it a "foreign tongue", not a "language".

CC: I had some trouble getting onto the Flare Forums just now, I hope that hasn't got anything to do with this...

Nope, that was a routine reboot...

Server DOWNTIME is never caused by anything I do. When I'm doing things and don't want people mucking around, I set things up so you get an error message.
