Regarding the banning of -JD-

First off, under normal circumstances I would refuse to discuss an administrative action publicly, but in this case I’m making a very special exception because I’m getting tired of people PMing me demanding to know why his posts were deleted.

Short answer to that question: THEY WERE NOT DELETED! THEY ARE CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE TO STAFF MEMBERS!

Now that I have that out of the way I’m going to address the why, and I am going to do that by posting the exact information that is currently available to all staff members.

Oh, and incidentally, this is one of the few times I will ever publicly post an IP address of a member, but I’m also making a special exception because this is a confirmed VPN IP address and not his real address.

This is the logs from the login strikes system related to my account getting locked out temporarily due to multiple failed login attempts. Note the IP because this is going to be very relevant in a moment.

Now, let me backup and explain something regarding JD that some older members will remember that newer ones won’t. JD had several stories removed several years ago because they contained content that violated the rules. And no I won’t be more specific than that because it’s not relevant. What is relevant is that JD is one of a small numbers of users who should have been banned long ago but wasn’t and was given a second chance instead, and generally without issues until recently. Now they the reason the removal is relevant is that generally speaking when that happens your account does get a watchdog attached to it. It doesn’t do much beyond keeping detailed logs of when you login and the to/from/source IP of any PMs sent. Literally, that’s all it does, but it becomes relevant because on April 24th, 2017, we have this little gem in the logs:

(note that due to a quirk of the log system times in this log are in EDT, not CDT like the above so I’ve included it in both original form and the CDT equivalent below)

From: -JD-

IP: 104.151.246.108

Note the IP addresses that have been made bold for your convenience.

And last but not least, the literal email the board sent me at the time the threshold for failed logins was passed.

Dear Renko Yanagi,

Someone has tried to log into your account on ABDL Story Forum with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 104.151.246.108

All the best,
ABDL Story Forum [/noparse]

Note that the only alteration I made was to remove my real email address, the rest is unedited. And yes, I included the email headers.

Based on all of the above evidence he was banned. And I will even include the literal ban reason on his account below just so I can make it completely clear despite this shit I was and still am willing to give him a chance to return in a couple months.

Your most recent IP address was used as part of an attempt to hack an administrator account. You may appeal this ban on 6/24/2017 by emailing [noparse]issues@abdlstoryforum.info.[/noparse]

And I would like to add that when he emailed me, I even repeated that same information. This is not a permanent ban as long as there are no other issues coming from any of his known IP addresses.

Now all of that being said? If I am presented with absolute proof that he wasn’t the one using that VPN IP at the time (unlikely… but possible) then I will immediately remove the ban. Otherwise, it stays in place and as indicated if he wants to return in June, I am absolutely willing to give him that chance. This is literally the last I will say on the topic to anyone else. If you email me about it, you’ll just be linked to this topic.

And incidentally, Purged_User, Wingz, WBDaddy, Sharlin, and Ally can all verify his posts are still there. Hell they can post screenshots of how Board Member Stories looks for them right now. In fact I encourage it.

EDIT TO ADD: Regarding the email above: Yes I left the real server names in there. I literally only censored my actual email address which is not one on the board’s domain.

Re: Regarding the banning of -JD-

Since Renko suggested it, here is proof with your own eyes that the threads are still there.

Re: Regarding the banning of -JD-

To give another picture of proof, if it’s needed.

Re: Regarding the banning of -JD-

There’s a bit more to this as well, regarding why he would be banned - and why he may have been trying to hack Renko’s account in the first place. Just know that this was not a complete surprise.
