The staff here at E-I have been undergoing some investigations regarding a particular group of posters. We have been monitoring the activity of these users and have been doing some research behind the scenes over the past few weeks, and as managers we have been asked to try and prevent this from becoming a public issue on the message boards so that we can pursue this matter.
Some people that have been aware of this have cooperated with us and we would like to thank you for that, however there have also been one or two individuals that have decided to push this matter and this has impeded our investigation, so we have not been able to pursue the matter to the degree we wanted to, however we have enough overwhelming evidence to ban these users from the message boards.
The people that have been banned are the following:
Without going into too much detail on the matter, I can tell you that we believe several of these users have been accessing and posting from each other's accounts, as well as submitting reviews from multiple profiles. We do take such matters extremely seriously and sometimes we have to allow things to run its course over a period of time to gather enough information.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am sure this may come as a shock to some of you but not so much to others.
