Due to the vast amount of spam we've been getting lately I've decided to tighten the boards security features a little bit. This means that new accounts need to first verify their email address, and then be verified by one of the admins through the control panel.

Any accounts that are awaiting validation at the time of this post have been deleted from the database.

If you're having any problems just drop any of us admins an email (our forum username @igrandtheftauto.com) with your username and registered email address and we'll look into it.


Also, just a quick thanks to everyone who has been reporting spam posts. It makes clearing up the mess much easier. Keep it up smile.gif

Good to see the spam stop. I almost feel sorry for the admins having to manually check every new member and spammer..

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

There's some spammers that validated or registered before the change so there may be a few more popping up over time. Just keep reporting them. smile.gif

I'm almost speechless. laugh.gif
I didn't think you guys would ever afford such splendid work of art in your staff room, when I said that it was only to tease. But some of you must have much deeper pockets than I thought. And good taste! I must say I'm really handsome in that portrait, it's enhanced and better than the original. I expect a phone call from Time and People Magazine any minute. smile.gif

Good work with implementing my self portrait in that picture. The cat or whatever it is that you added is awesome.
