I think someone is very pissed off at OBN and that is the reason for the attacks. The links are not only porn they are Trojans and Viruses attached. Unfortunately any member or guest that clicks the links there can have really big problems. I agree that the only reason for the OBN Forum is to get people there, that are interested in Bingo, and click their banners. I have delt with the owners of OBN several times. Chit has happened at their site before, and we have called them on it. Than I get an email from them and they state we are too harsh because they have been away on holiday and have no knowledge of what happened during their absence, and therefore are not responsible. This is pure hogwash, they like BPU are responsible for what goes on at their site.

While all them porno links are luring their readers into clicking and having their computers disabled. OBN Staff are off having a good time! I’m sorry, but if you own a forum you have a responsibility to your members and readers to make sure you forum is monitored for such attacks. It’s ironic that while OBN owners are on Holiday (with the money they received because of the forum traffic that clicks their banners) Their members and readers are subject to a virus attack from the site they post and support.

This is not the first time this has occurred there. It has become apparent to some of the regular posters there that OBN is not on the job. We care about our readers and members! We are a staff of 6 that monitor our forum constantly , OBN posters will always be welcome at BPU. Yes we have had our bumps, but hopefully we have learned from them. The difference between us and OBN is when we make a mistake we try our best to fix it. We just don’t delete it and make it go away.

I have come across the same thing at BPU but only with new member links. I personally check and approve all memberships. The first thing I do is delete the website they list in their membership, unless I know about the site! I have had my computer taken off line checking some of these links, so I don’t do it any more and disable any links they have before I approve their account for membership. If you want to link to BPU you need to do at least one Bingo related post. We are on top of what posted at our site.

OBN members are always welcome at BPU! Some of you I might have disagreed with in the past but hopefully we all learned to respect each others opinions.

This actually started with the porn type posts that link to viruses over a month ago. I posted a warning at that time and the suspicious post was deleted. Now they are running rampant!
I see a lot of member posts complaining about this too.

It's great to have a place to post where the Admins are on the ball!
Thanks Bingo Players Union!

Thanks..
Well, lets see.. the adm. there thinks viruses and hard core porn is typical spamming that happens everywhere.. Maybe, when a site is left unattended for days. We all need a vacation and i understand that, but some events and forces can not be left alone for days regardless of the holiday or reason. It is called "responsibility". Is there a staff at the obn site? It is not like they have to be in a physical building, just at their computer for a few minutes a day to do a visual check.
I find it insulting and extraordinary to get banned from private messaging a person to offer assistance or information, but porn and virus posters can run rampant. And by the way, what is the point of private messaging if the admin. is going to read and monitor what you are saying to another member? Too bad the admin. there is not as diligent and dedicated to keeping the open forum as pristeen and unsullied as well .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

what is with all the hard core porn links at this site???????
That is disgusting to get notifications to see it is nothing but some nasty pornographic crap!
surely these people can be banned thru isp's. If they want to get off on sharing porn with others, they should give it to their moms or girlfriends... they are not welcome to exhibit their fetishes and deviant dreams via a family oriented public forum. Someone needs to tell them!

Save it ~!! This place does not monitor its forum, they simply wait for a click to rake in the bucks. That is all this forum is for. Occasionally you read something from them but it is usually in favor of the pocket. I haven't posted here in so long because I have learned sadly IT DOES NO GOOD ~! Personally, I read it for the GOOD HONEST PLAYERS opinions and not for the forum solicitations.
Hello)) & Merry Xmas to all you good honest people that post for the GOOD of the players ~!

Yoooooohoooooooo is anyone awake in admin of this place?? The porn links are getting wayyyyyyyy out of hand

Note:
As usual OBN deleted all members comments that no one is watching the store. Sooner or later this policy will backfire on them as more of their members see how their personal comments to OBN are addressed.

I hope I didnt cause a disruption, but I was so shocked to see that garbage there, being previously alerted how obnsam is so stringent regarding posting policy........... I was dreadfully fearful I might have missed news of his tragic demise, or in the least the death of his personal computer.

Obviously OBN not important to those who are supposed to monitor the forum. Porno/virus links back, probably more than ever now. I would have to laugh and say enter at your own risk.

OBN can say what they want but this is no random attack! This is a deliberate attempt to damage them! Surly someone is pissed at them. You would think they would have been a bit more vigilant since the last attack came on a holiday weekend.

Goes to show you were their interest are. I expect we will see another Admin post condemning the attack while no one was watching the store. How long does it take a responsible webmaster to check that his /her site is secure?

Sorry OBN! But this is very poor administration. With all the Money they make, you would think they could afford to pay someone to watch their forum. But to do that they would first have to care what their members and guests are exposed to.

Ya Amen! I had to add yet another name to the banner. Seems they know when to hit OBN! 9:00 am - 5:00 pm five days a week is pretty common. Wish I could have them hours! Watching out for players is pretty much a 24/7/365 job! And if I'm not around, you can bet another staff member will be!
