    I thought he was banned but he is still posting he did not even get a suspension when he told the staff here he scammed 4 or 5 people out of money, and he purchased a wii with the money (after he scammed he posted he wanted to buy a wii), he told the staff he scammed the money for his uncle but then he posted he wanted to buy a wii for $400.....(total liar), although he was banned from the trading forum i think he should get a account ban and a ip ban.

    Apparently they kept his account open for communication purposes.

    They could have easily banned him from posting on the forum if it was opened for communication purposes.

    He deserves death, would anyone want to go on a road trip with me and break his legs? I think his adress was posted in the other thread [​IMG]

    Oh, and I think his phone was too, we should all spam call/email/snailmail this asswipe.

    You guys realize that he isn't coming back anyway. He was only here for the trading forum and now that he is banned from the trading forum, he has no use here. Do you honestly think he is still going to hang around here and post like, "Hey guys, hows it going? I can't wait for the new Pokemon game. What do you think the best new feature will be? Did you hear about Sony? LOL" Ummm...no, he's gone so banning him from the forum doesn't even make sense to discuss.

    Yeah, what an asshat. this is such a great help community and this guy comes in, scams people, and acts like it's nothing. I don't know if banning him will be better punishment though, if he stays here no one is going to like him.

    This site is a source of information, he doesn't have to post he can still use the information. Banning would mean he lost his best GBA/NDS/Wii info site which would be good punishment.

    Alright guys, I've been a bit busy the last few days and the guy had slipped my mind.

    Swordmyth has now been completely banned. IPs banned, e-mails banned, accounts and account names banned.

    He shouldn't be coming back anytime soon.

    ive been ip banned from aimforum.com once they sold out because i supported the people who hacked the site (out of disgust towards the new owner, long story nothing bad.) he was banning anybody with the hackers handles in their sig, ip banning. blocks from the whole site, it wont even load.

    EDIT: aww, shaun beat me.
