Someone posted a comment on ANN pretending to be Bill Buck and Bill Buck thought his ANN (Trusted user) account had been used and so made out that it must have been the AmigaWorld Staff that did it as he used the same password for his account on this site.

cheek eh?

After he managed to figure out that his ANN account had not really been used he could have at least apologized.

So he acuses a site which tends to lean towards his competitor as spoofing him. Then he admits he was surprised the mods here put up that news item, and how no-one flamed him over this - but doesn't even apologise?

Don't bother flaming him over this - I don't really care what he says, as he isn't getting any of my money

@IonMane

He's in charge of Genesi, the people who do MorphOS and the Pegasos.

I do not see a reason for him to mention AmigaWorld and not for example AO instead!?

AmigaWorld staff are against all types of spoofing and abuse which can often be found at other forums, so it's especially sad to see that BB pulls AW into the discussion with regard to spoofing.

In fact since a long time ago I have often advocated a handle registration system to Christian.

Let's just view this as an unfortunate mistake and talk about more important stuff.

Thread locked.

Users passwords are stored encrypted in the database, so it is impossible for the Amigaworld staff to view a user's password
