Yep.

I did... do you know the usernames for them?

Edit: I asked Tim Clark and he thinks that they might be banned, he cannot access the page either.

What brought them to you

What brought them to your attention

Tim

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

RE: What brought them to you

I was looking through users and eventually came across them.

And I also have a question

And I also have a question about the administrator.

https://portableapps.com/user/1

Who is the administrator?
Is it John?

Unix

It's a Unix thing. That is the year that Unix was made. So, no, it's not John.

Deleted / Banned

Yeah, as mentioned, those are most likely spammers, bugmenot accounts, or just a couple of the few people who were banned from here.

Edit: However, they are only one digit off... odd.

BugMeNot

http://www.bugmenot.com/view/portableapps.com
Very interesting... "Site Blocked - This site has been barred from the bugmenot system."

But anyway, although I like BugMeNot, PortableApps.com is one of the few sites that I am not at all tempted to make an account for - which shows how much I like it Smile

Recent

That 'barred from the bugmenot system' is recent. I think after John deleted that last BugMeNot account, he tried to have as 'barred' again and apparently it worked.

RE: Deleted / Banned

So you think it's just a coincidence that they're right next to each other?

No

Patrick Patience doesn't not believe in coincidence. Or perhaps he does. Maybe it's the one thing he believes in most. This you will never know, just like why those two users are right next to each other.

Look at the user #'s around these 2.

Example 84098, 84097,- 84101, 84102. Their mostly East German or Russian. Could they be possible spammers?
