    Very big money involved. The intent was malicious. It is a dog fight between two large jewelry companies for the consumers' dollars. Guess both are equally nasty and mean.

    I'm the account owner of Feitonglong and xjedi (moderator). I sold both of these accounts on Gumtree on the 16th Oct 2012 as well.
    The person who bought my accounts used them to defame a company named JannPaul.

    My Feitonglong account was used to make several malicious posts against JannPaul and discouraged the public to avoid the services of JannPaul.
    To clarify, I have not bought any rings from JannPaul and have never visited their store before. This account no longer belongs to me.

    My moderator account xjedi was used to ban a few users here defending JannPaul. It was also used to delete any posts regarding anyone trying to defend or clarify the matter.
    All the missing posts that was deleted was done by this compromised moderator account, xjedi. This includes Sacredsoul's first disclaimer post.

    The buyer from Gumtree told me that my accounts will strictly be used for marketing purposes. I did not know he would use them to abuse others and defame other companies.
    HardwareZone has since banned both accounts.

    I apologize to JannPaul for this and did not mean for this to happen.
    I also apologize to other users that was wrongfully banned and posts deleted.

    JannPaul must be earning really tons of cash to be able to engage big time lawyers to fight for them. Part of it came from me..

    It is easy to create multiple account and click "like" or rate "5 stars".
    Many companies hired people to wrote good reviews of their products.

    This particular incident wasn't in EDMW.

    Anyway I noticed many HWZ moderators are quite intolerant of EDMWers outside of EDMW within HWZ forums, even locking threads for "EDMWish type language" in their respective subforums.
