I have no doubt that you are sincere.  I have no doubt that you believe this.

We were given the ability to delete posts that are considered SPAM and to block the user accounts that are made for the proliferation of said SPAM when a huge wave of SPAM posters came here and the Avast staff were unable to keep up with the number of posts. This is the limit of what we do as far as moderation of the forum.

Unfortunately, you are wrong.

The members of the group to which you belong, or a select few from that group, and/or the other group -- some of you are authorized to issue "warnings" that can be used by Avast to levy severe penalties upon a member of this community that is known not to be a spammer.

These warnings do not have to be given any identifying feature so that the member knows they are warnings.  They appear as regular posts.

If you wish, I can provide the proof of what I write in the form of one screen shot and evidence on this board.  Meaning, I am writing words of fact backed by evidence.  This is not something from my imagination.

Would anyone care to view the evidence?

Are you stating the member I responded to is a troll?

That surprises me.

Or are you now calling me a troll? 

If so, that would follow right on the heels of my asking if any of you wanted to see proof of what I write.  That sequence might be quite enlightening.

But I am not sure who you are calling a troll.

I was referring to the notice I received from Bob3160.

I am not in arrears to the owner of this site, so it must be for the other reason a notice is served, which is breaking a rule. Stating it is a friendly notice makes no difference. A notice is a notice.

What rule or rules did I break?
