    Just to let everyone know, if you used a fake email address to create your account email (this happens more than you would think), you are likely to run into a ban;

    on average I get 9 bouncebacks of the automated emails per day to congratulate users on their birthday because the email address does not exist or is wrong.

    Starting NOW I will ban every one of them.

    Have a nice day.

    I think that Able is just asking you to go to your profile and validate that the email address that you have there is valid and legit.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    My e-mail address is correct, but I have not received an e-mail from PacersDigest since 2011, and have never receiver a birthday message. Now it seems my account is acting up. Am I "baned?"

    9 emails day x 365 days in a year means 3,285 fake PD accounts.

    Surely not.

    I'm pretty sure most would agree that we don't' need our birthday's acknowledged. You can probably stop doing that. Problem solved.

    Actually, probably on the low end. Something like 75% of spambot accounts created by automated systems never actually go live for whatever reason.

    Me neither, not that I was sweating it. However my birthday is looming so I could be banned within a month. Nice knowing you chumps.


    I didn't really find Able's message confusing either, but maybe I speak his crazy combo of Dutch/Brit/tech-speak shorthand. Its funny because in person Able does not present such a "confused" variant of English. But on PD a lot of posts seem like they were made from his phone while driving rather than typing on a keyboard.

    Oye, what gives A?

    With spambots and the occasional repeat trolls, you'd be surprised.

    thanks for the translation, I understand perfectly what I wrote and still fail to see what is so hard to understand.
    Nonetheless facts remain as they are, that is just an average those 9, last night I had 11
    we have only restored the email function for the admin-side of the board recently to make sure that important messages reach us and you (like the initial email and lost password emails)
    I would personally not be surprised if there were 10 times your estimate McKeyfan
    and finally Seth; buys and yes sometimes I use that method as well

    The is the first confusing part. Fit very vague in this situation, as when most people (at least in the US) see fit they don't think bad, they think about size. Like does it fit within the character count limit, not is it a valid input.

    on average I get 9 emails per day to congratulate YOU on your birthday but oye the email addie Is wrong

    The problem here is you didn't specify that the emails were bouncing back. As a reader I have no idea where those emails are coming from. The 'ove' and 'addie' are just slang words that we don't use over here, so we don't really know what they mean exactly or at all.

    Or a member's email program has "bounced" the email as a spam message. Depending on each individual email program's spam settings, it could be set to reject the message, rather than simply send it to a junk mail folder.

    By "ove" I assume you mean "oye" - not eurospeak but techspeak, it means On Your End. As in, the error is from the receiver side of the email connection.

    holy mother of pearl, are we to have a talk bout the Queens language here?????

    oye = OYE = hey you, perfect word used in London for over 500 years, even a cockney understands it.
    addie, address; emailaddie internet vocabulary since 1998 just in case you missed the memo
    FIT = something does not fit the bill to be fitting for a job, fit your pipes, your email address does not fit your account here aka it doesn't combine that well, what else can I say to tell ppl that the email address used on sign-up must be real hence the "fit the account" if not, you're toast here (aka I will ban you) all according to the Queens English, Oxford dictionary and such.
    I got your b-day email, meaning I am the bounce addie for the mail send out, very logical since I am the system-administrator; means also it was miss-delivered since I don't want your b-day wishes, you should be getting them and PLEASE why else would I get an email addressed to a member of this board?

    and why are we making such a ruckus about this, if I try to be nice it seems to get lost, so back to form:

    If your email address connected to your PD account doesn't work or bounces, rest assured I will ban your arse, you can NOW change it to a correct one.
    Caught me a spammer in the works as well last night, banned 75 accounts


    now back to your scheduled entertainment.
