Last night I tried to register at a martial arts website which is supposed to accept those active in martial arts. Initially my application was accepted. When I woke up this morning (Malaysian time) an email waited for me. My membership was cancelled.
I was not given any explanation. This led to me making assumptions, which may or may not be true.
1) The email address used had been hijacked by spammers because I was away for some time. The fact is I received three spam emails supposedly from me to my own email address.
2) There are people who are not happy with me. I used the same nickname as the one for askme.com (shut down in November 2005) where I was consistently in the top 10 on the Martial Arts page.
3) Someone or a group of people unrelated to (2) had sabotaged and sullied my name.
Maybe someone out there can give a better explanation. The site I tried to register is martialartsplanet.com. Giving out the name does not mean I am angry.
