As I've posted elsewhere, moderators don't have the ability to delete offensive PMs sent to other accounts, nor are we capable of banning an IP address. I'm leaving in the morning, so unless I can get in touch with Heidi before then... yeah. I just wanted to advise you all to ride this one out and really, let this conversation die. All you're really doing is encouraging and goading this idiot by showing him/her that you're offended (clearly that's what they're trying to do- offend people).

As for the thing about emailing CNN, I doubt that's going to go anywhere. Just to point out, anyone can register on a forum with pretty much any screenname, and Colin Farrell the forum user is most certainly not the actor of the same name. This isn't exactly a hard hitting news story- it's an immature nitwit with nothing better to do with his/her time than send offensive porn to teenagers.

When it rains ... it pours.

First, the server that GilmoreGirls.org is hosted on had a minor hiccup that caused the site to be down for a little over a day.  Then, within just 5 to 6 hours of coming back online, the ORG Forum was hit by a petty spammer.

Here are a few notes on the situation:

  • The two incidents were not at all related.
  • The spammer has been banned (by both username and IP) and all of his posts deleted.
  • The Members List has been temporarily taken offline until further security measures can be put in place.  (For the time being, I recommend that everyone remove the option to have their e-mail address publicly listed in user profiles.)
  • Sadly, these types of occurrences happen all over the Net (even to a friendly fan site like GilmoreGirls.org).  The ORG Forum has dedicated moderators (and helpful senior members) who try to ensure that everything runs smoothly at all times.  The inappropriate content was deleted within seven hours of being posted.  (Please take note that the inappropriate content was posted during the wee hours of the morning.  As soon as an available moderator was informed of the incident, things were quickly taken care of.)

GilmoreGirls.org is committed to providing a fun and safe environment for Gilmore Girls fans of all ages.  In the next few days I will be looking into additional security steps that can be taken to prevent future attacks. 

If anyone has any comments, please send let me know.  Thank you.

ok. I didn't know that. I thought you only answered to the laws which applies on the land you are on.

Yeah not necessarily.

Where did you check this anyway

I am from Denmark. I checked it on the website Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark. I just got curios, so I checked it.

I just reported him to the mods, so hopefully his thread will be permanently deleted very soon and the username will be banned just like the other.
