If this is the kind of publicity this kid from Australia, Germany, Austria, or wherever else, who runs iWipo
web hosting forum is looking for, then by all means, I'll be happy to help him with it.
I travelled during the month of September, so I wasn't that quick to react, but I have received numerous reports from members of our community that informed me of receiving an advertising message from another new member advertising his web hosting forum. The advertising came through a Private Message system, but in all cases, the content of the message was the same:

Now, Tim Liton
, iWipo hosting forum administrator
, I have something to tell you, so listen up. Poaching members of another community is a despicable tactic and one that will neither gain you any friends in this industry, nor will build you a respectable community.
Why would anyone
in their right mind still think that spamming is a good idea, especially among people who hate it and fight against it on a daily basis?
You've already burned bridges with at least a couple of influential hosting communities that I know of, so are you trying to damage your reputation and the one of your community on purpose? Because you are doing an excellent job doing so.
On that note, Tim, I sincerely hope that with this thread you gain the publicity you were looking for for iWipo
when you came here to spread the word. Best of luck to you.
