I just wanted to let you guys know about what I am sure is going to cause some scruff. So, this is the post that I made about one of your very long time and very continuous posters (he has made over 6500 forum posts on your forum).

Did he get me upset, you betcha. But I get that a lot from people like him anyway. What really bothered me though was the fraud that he is committing about the work that he is claiming to have done and for what clients. He is lying to all the new people to this industry about who he has worked for, the level of experience that he has, and he is obviously claiming that other peoples work is his own.

I usually don't give a damn about this kind of stuff or even posting on the forum at all (usually too busy), but this guy has insulted everyone and I had to call him out on his own illegal activities and the fraud that he is committing to his own clients and the rest of us in the field. Just read the post.

As for me, I understand if you take action against me. Perhaps I've even upset you guys, so, I will just say thank you for all the work that you do for us who aren't frauds and are trying to learn this field. However, please stop someone who has posted 6500 posts on your forum and has been committing fraud the entire time.

(edit to add) I have also contacted the production company for the television show Britons Got Talent and I have asked them to investigate the video on Rob Neal's site and to inform me if he in fact designed the opening after effects sequence for the television program. Since I used to work for HSN (not in graphics or the TV department) I am pretty sure that they would never contract out for this service at all, as HSN did not either.

I am sure Rob is going to get a kick out of this LOL hahaha. Anyways, if you have a problem with a forum member like Rob --and we all do ;) . It's best if you iron out the fight through PM's first.

Anyways, it's not the website mod's job to investigate weather or not Rob is a liar. If Rob claims to work for for the Queen of England herself then it's his story, who cares, it's the internet. Forums are very self regulatory. If Rob where really a nuisance and he was really giving out bad advice we would have "corrected" him 6000 forum posts ago.

Nobody is taking "action" against you. Rob just pissed you off. He is know for having that effect on people LOL hahaha.

It seems you've forgotten about supahfilms, who claimed to work for, Paramount, was it?

Frankly, I'm surprised someone didn't go over the edge and report Rob sooner, but I think you missed the point of my comment Tony. My point was that supahfilms was someone who made all these ridiculous claims, and they obviously weren't true. Just because you've read a lot of someones posts online doesn't mean you know them personally. I could be a serial killer for all you know. It's all just words anyway.
Still, the fact reamins that Rob has, in fact, offered useful advice, regardless of who he's worked for or who he says he's worked for.

Take what you read with a grain of salt. If you have a real issue with a forum member please contact a mod.
The reset button was my idea.
