It has come to our attention lately that someone is sending e-mail to NG users in which they masquerade as Tom and ask users to vote 5 on a certain Portal submission. So, for the record:

1) We will NEVER ask you for your Grounds Gold password. I know all of them, so why would I need to ask you for yours?

2) We will NEVER ask you to vote up a specific Portal submission. If we really wanted to bump up a piece of content, I would go directly into the database and alter the score. (NOTE: We have never done this.)

The last thing we want to see is people losing their Grounds Gold account when someone swindles them out of their password - so be careful out there.

Whoo ... I know what that's like... my friend had a site with 10,000 users and I once sat at the computer and went through the server files... ever seen 10,000 cgi files with info in each? Whew, I tell you... I bet some rich losers would be willing to pay a couple grand just to get Adambomb or WadeFulp's password and view the secret stuff... I'm out. Peace.

Thanks for spreading the word Ross.

Has anybody else recieved suspicious e-mail?

I posted a small warning on the BBS here right before I notified the NG Staff.

I think it's pretty stupid that people would believe an email like that, but hey, there are some pretty stupid people out there.

This actually sounds like it would be a pretty good idea. I'm not saying that what this user did was right, but it obviously took a lot of effort to do, and I think that as long as none of the people emailed vote 5's on the movie unless they honestly think its that good, it won't be a problem. Just let the guilty user have their fun with what they did. Note: I realize that posting this will probably cause a lot of people to assume that I am the person who did this email fraud thing, but rest assured that I could never possibly think of such a plan, and even if I could I wouldn't have the balls to do it.

Why would someone do that? Someone is real desperate to be in the Top 50. That person has no life whatsofucking ever. Is the Flash movie that person is asking people to vote for 5's in the Portal? It could be someone who makes lots of shitty Flash movie and spams the Portal like crazy, like Strawberry_Clock. I did not get any e-mail about that yet. I hope not. I would be pissed!! What's the e-mail address of the person who sends it to Grounds Gold users? It might be someone in the BBS, who is hated by everyone.

No you dumb fuck. vite5.homestead.com was not even mentioned. I can see how vote and vite can confuse you, you know with you being such a dumb ass and all. But you don't have to make yourself look like a dumb ass for every one. Unless you like people laughing at you.

I have a cool idea to get the e-mailers account, if you have got an e-mail telling you to vote for a certain movie, just go and check out the maker of that movie, and they will be sending the mails telling you to vote.... It's that simple!

Your arse that was a fucking typo. I meant to say vote5.homstead.com if your blind. I didnt Get mix up at all - if thought the subject might of been VOTE5.homestead.com considering it was mentioning VOTE 5!!!

well, you wanna know what i think? I think its funny how people who have a lot of posts on the NG BBS think they have more authority over the people with less like myself. And that they can cuss out whoever they want. And another thing that is funny is how people criticize your movies and they have no movies to criticize back, meaning they havent exactly created the godly movie themselves. Yep, this is off topic, but lets get on topic. That email thing.. is not brilliant, and is not some newbie who has shitty movie. ANYONE could have emailed people asking to vote for his movie and ask for passwords.. ANYONE.. They do not want to be in the top 50, they just want to be recognized, it could be XIAOXIAO#3 even. So all of you acting like detectives when you havent even GOT the email, stop acting all cool, cause you wont find the 'vandal'. If your thinking im the person, your wrong.

I'm pretty sure I got an a E-mail from that Tom Fulp impersonating... person, he said my grounds account was deleted because I said some stuff "sucked ass" and some people were "mother fuckers", but if Tom would delete my account for something like he'd have to be a complete hypocrite... it's just some dumbfuck who thinks he's smooth, reading the reviews off my NG profile and trying to steal my password. So, Fuck you impersonating person.

Hey, don't steal my pictures! That was MY funny pic I found on the 'net! Yeah, Pungee, I mean you! I know you got it from me because the only other version on the web is in a less compressed format, and I personally modified it myself to use on the BBS! So fark you! (Typo on purpose, so I didn't swear. =) Oh, and for all you STUPID people who failed to notice, the author only mailed the Top 10 users. Thats why all you pathetic weaklings with all your 210 points and all didn't get an email. Duh! You think he'd care whatsoever if some baby like you voted? NO! He just wants the big NG "players" to vote. (Never actually used that term to describe anybody except a stupid person before...) So stop filling the BBS with your stupidity and SHADDUP!
