Latest member banned.

If you share your database with others and they upload it then it is YOU that will forfeit your subscription and be banned.

It's been a while since we found a recent copy of our database being shared. Not something we celebrate but the source has been identified and banned with the loss of their subscription payment and the balance of their sub.

Two months since the last one. We can easily identify sources no matter what they try to do in an attempt to thwart the system and disguise the data.

Another user now banned and subscription forfeited.

And one more ban - this time a persistent sharer of our data who has so far created three separate identities and accounts.

All to no avail - banned yet again.

And another one - happily hosting and sharing data and offering it to all and sundry.

Wonder how they'd feel if I popped around and emptied his wallet?

It's been quite some time since we've had a problem with piracy of our database but sadly another former member thinks it's Ok to share our data.

It isn't, they're now banned for life and have forfeit the balance of their subscription. Hope it was worth it.
