    I don't know why you posted this in the Graphics Cards section? Did you get this in a PM here at TPU? Who was the member that sent you the PM?

    I got this PM here on this forum a few min ago. The sender was SjomReX

    More ppl I guess? I didn't want to take my time in looking around for the correct location.

    I understand, but it would be a great waste of my time if everyone felt to post things wherever they want, the forums would go into chaos and it would rain dead kittens.:laugh: Thanks for the heads up on this! :toast:

    Well, you can IP ban all the computers in his area by using * on the last few numbers. All the ones connected to his router I hope.
