    Default Who is Java Example?

    For lack of a better place to ask this question -- who is Java Example? Clearly they must have
    privileges to post code in staff only areas (I presume they are protected areas as I could not reply
    there). Also, the posted code does not even follow proper technique, even for AWT. And
    citing an example with RoseIndia in the window after everything I have heard about that site
    is strange.

    A user named 'Java Software' used to be the owner/admin of this forum ...

    edit: silly me; the admin's name was/is 'JavaForums' ...

    kind regards,

    See my edit in my previous reply. b.t.w. I can't ban 'Java Software'; there's something fishy going on here ...

    They're both really weird cases. I mean Java Software spams, but generally with correctly worded posts covering Java-based software that is often free too. That's not your average spambot; that is a true information service. A pointless one, but I do believe its a serious thing.

    Java Example spams... but not to sell anything either, they are basically your average tutorial; written (or spoken) hastily by someone not experienced with the deeper intricacies of the subject material who is out to make a name by sharing his or her epic knowledge with the world, resulting in shallow "Click here, look there!" explanations with broken examples. BUT... there is no name here, just "Java Example".

    Again: pointless, but it looks sincere. I can't wrap my head around it.

    Yesterday, JavaForums was logged in and according to who's logged in was using the admin console.
    And Java Example (JE) was also logged in at the same time. After three successive posts by JE, the posts
    were closed -- but not deleted. And JE also "joined" the forum yesterday.

    So its probably a friend of the current site owner who gets to do whatever he pleases.

    Well if I get banned for making snide remarks towards him, its been great conversing with you guys ;)

    Those suspicious users are all from Dahka, Bangladesh; there are more of those spammers/silly idiots from that area. Now they manage to become 'Super Moderators' ..

    You'd think they can just become contributors on the site-which-must-not-be-named-but-already-was :/
