I'd just like to publically apologise for attempting to access the Admin account last night. I know what you're thinking, why the ferk would I want to do that? I was having a giddy moment on the back of a thread that has now been deleted where Duncan and GSI3.2 were challenging each other. I took the bait big time (even though the bait wasn't mine to take), and as I used to be admin I used a very old password and a couple of varients in an attempt to access the account.
Admin has told me that they had a conflab with the Moderators and the consensus of opinion was to immediately ban me! Fair enough you all think. Thankfully, the executive decision was taken to just send me a stiff warning via PM instead, which I read this morning.
Can I just assure you all that my attempt to access this account was just that, 'to access' it and there was nothing sinister about it. I was going to try and throw some pointers for Mark during his challenge. There wasn't any take over plan or anything else you may be thinking of, as you and I are aware it takes more than just control panel for that.
I'm not stupid enough to think that it wouldn't have flagged up with Admin, but I underestimated how seriously they take these things. Be assured my tail is firmly placed between my legs and it won't be happening again.
P.S. I'm going to add a poll to this and I will abide by it. What should my punishment be? I've set the poll to close in 10 days and expect Admin to act by it. Seriously peeps, I am very sorry.
