Title: Dattaswami - banned from this site
Post by: Graham on April 03, 2008, 05:32:41 PM
Dattaswami has been banned from this site because he broke the rules and is clearly on a campaign of self-promotion - which goes against everything that this site is about.

I took the decision to remove everything posted by him and all replies, but only after reading some of the rubbish he posted.

This is irreversible.

I must apologise for not acting sooner.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I stopped visiting this site after Dattaswami hijacked it. Now I might return once in a while.

If anything like this happens again, then all members please inform me by mailing me.

I am not a censor, but Dattaswami's kind of conduct will not be tolerated in future.

Who is this Dattaswami? I have checked about Him in Internet and I saw pictures of him like a saint or God or something like that. And he was banned from every forum :D. What does he preach to be so rejected?

Dear Hari,

Whoever this person was, he was a total nuisance, he flooded every thread and topic with endless rhetoric, repeated on page after page. If I recall correctly he posted up to 60 very long pages a day, all of them starting with 'Dattaswami says this'.

Whether it was Dattaswami himself or some crank follower who was doing the posting, it was obvious that they were using this forum as a promotional tool for this fellow.

This forum is not about his immense ego, however knowledgeable he might be.

Graham
