Sorry if you received an email or a comment from a spammer named Maris Ahmed.  They have been kicked off the user forum, and any comments they posted should be gone as well.

Feel free to send me a message if you ever are getting spam message from any user forum members, and we will boot them off the user forum with a spam marker.  We review people looking to join to try and prevent this, but sometimes someone will present themselves as a legitimate user and get approved.

I got an email that seemed suspicious from that email address. Isearched it in the web and found complaints about spam coming from that address and advising others not to respond.

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless

Hi Lawrence,

What's up with your recent comment?  Is there someone we need to boot off the user forum?

I also had the email.... now deleted...

Yep. Got one myself. I suspect someone is harvesting emails to sell for spam purposes.

Before approving a new forum applicant have them submit some quality artwork as part of their application :)

Here is something I am working on this morning, for retroactive approval.


Cool image. Feel free to post it and others to the photo gallery.

I've got a ton on images I am working on using modifications of the original preset. The best are going up on my web gallery (, but I have so far only thinned the herd down to two galleries. More coming later.

Thanks for the compliment, and thanks for SA.

When we boot someone for spam, any content they posted here is deleted from the forum.  But any emails they sent to members you will still get unfortunately if they have already been sent.

I go back and forth on only letting people who match up on the official customer list join, which is what i was doing for awhile.  But there are some people who are legitimate trial users who want to join to ask questions before they possibly purchase. So recently i've started letting those people in.  Guess i'll stop that again.
