ehi. a hypothetical. let's say i call my friend fred. he uses a service called groups.io. for some reason, he trys to subscribe to a few groups, and is banned. does not know why. so, he has tried to contact the owners and moderators. they do not want to contact him, and tell him to go away. he is determined to find a way to rejoin the groups, and tries under a number of different e-mail addresses. but they find him and send him a e-mail, saying that he is using a fake address. but the addresses from gmail, yahoo, aol, apple are all legite. so, he wonders, if there is a way for him, to be a admin, even though he is banned. is there a way for him to do this. if so, how? so then he can get back at the mods, who are ignoring him. to teach him a lesson, and then hhe wants to block them out of being an owner or mods, and if he becomes an admin on this service, is it only for the one groups, or the entire site? just a brain teaser. any thoughts.

Not hypothetically, this falls under our forum rules:

Specifically this one: "No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user." <snip>

Bold above is mine to highlight the specific subject matter.

The site/group/admins of group.io have put security measures in place. We will not 'hypothetically' allow discussion on how to circumvent those measures.

With that being said this topic is closed.
