Default Dino banned from HF...Why?

All,

I just heard from a friend that Dino was banned from HF. Does anyone know anything about this?

Dino has been a great resource for us up here and I have read nothing he has posted that would constitute a reason for this to happen.

If anyone knows anything about this can you please share because many of us including myself would like to know why

Thanks

Must have been a glitch, because he's not banned now. To see if someone is banned, find a post of theirs and check to see if "Registered Users" is under their login name. That's the group the forum software has them in. It's part of the forum setup, but if nothing is there on HF, they are in the banned group.

As long as it's not a permanent ban, it will say registered users, I think. If the signature, avatar and/or send private message link is gone, some sort of ban is in effect unless, they chose to not set any of those things.

Good point. Yes, it looks like it's a temporary ban. I wonder why. Hopefully it's still a glitch and things will be sorted.

Dino's in the Doghouse? I thought "Fun, Learning, Friendship and Mutual Respect" was HeliFreak's motto?

Wow, HF is so much easier to consume than runryder, but if you're going to ban someone that continually helps those of us on the forums, might be time to switch. At our flying field we are always trying to get representative of all manufacturers to participate, and here you had a guy that always participated, and you ban him???

Maybe because he didn't post or put in his "signature" that he is affiliated with Align. Like if you are a rep, owner, team pilot etc...

I am not a moderator here but if I had to guess I would bet it was simply the system. If you log in from another computer or even the same computer in another place sometimes the system can ban you. It happened to me once. You can email the admin it is answered quickly and resolved with no problem. I believe it is part of the system which prevents your account from being taken over but you do need a good password all the same

Yay Dino's not banned I was like, what, no, what? lol

He is a very important source of information for HF.

Ok well now I am confused whether he's banned or not. Ultimately not my business but I will wait to see if I am privileged with a reason.

I sure hope someone can jump here from the HF team and let us know what is going on here. If it is a glitch then let's get it sorted out and move on.....

No glitch. Look at his join date, he knows the rules. Dino has repeatedly spammed this site, and been very argumentative with MANY people. He is also constantly cross posting advertising threads in the discussion forums. He made his OWN bed and now he is going to sleep in it for his timeout. It is not forever it is 5 days, UNLESS he makes another clone account, then it is 60 days.

Like this rule here that has been around since 2004: https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=96

If you REP or are in any way affiliated with a Vendor/Dealer/Distributor, you need to identify yourself as such in your signature. Keep it real and don't shill or you will be banned immediately. If you are a REP for Company A, do not troll Company B's threads. It is unprofessional and blows your credibility as well as generating a lot of complaints for our staff to deal with.

Dino needs to stay out of EPIC Heli threads and not antagonize Mike Fortin. There is a lot more to it than it looks and it is against the rules for him to mess with any other manufacturer. The average heli flyer may not understand this but anyone who is close to this business knows EXACTLY what I am talking about. Nuff said.

Also this one from out Terms of Use:
7.3 Responsibility for Account Use and Account Termination. You are responsible for all usage or activity on your Helifreak.com account. Helifreak, in its sole discretion, reserved the right to terminate your account for fraudulent, abusive or otherwise illegal and/or unlawful activity. You are prohibited from making clone accounts or multiple accounts. You acknowledge, agree and consent to the report by Helifreak to the appropriate law enforcement agencies of any illegal and/or unlawful activity on your part. You acknowledge and agree Helifreak shall not be liable to you or to any third party for the termination of your account or access by you to this Site or Helifreak.com.

Dino Spadaccini 69.125.109.xxx
me4sure 69.125.109.xxx
Registration IP Addresses

OK so some of Dino's posts that were moved from the discussion forums to M&D:
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=499485
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=499387
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=498259
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=498034
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=494511
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=487583

If you click his username and go to statistics tab you can find his posts and threads and see for yourself. NONE of Dino's advertising posts were created in M&D by him, our HF Support staff had to merge them all and move them all to M&D, that is making work for us by Dino's actions and he has been warned multiple times.

The end.
