Pbondar / Alienzed,

I am sorry for what happened but that has nothing to do with being professional or otherwise: it is an unintended consequence of bots scanning our website (for those who haven't noticed, a number of them are visible in the list of users "visiting" our website as guests).

Again I apologise for the unintended consequence; I was - in good faith - to facilitate communication among those who will take part to the North Wales Run 2019. The idea of the link was to afford you privacy (not having to share mobile number & name) and make it easy to join the group.

It seems to me a little harsh and a little too quick to jump to those conclusions.

Hope to meet you all in person in Wales.

All the best,
Attilio

This is bots scanning the forum and using the link. An unexpected consequence rather than anyone on the forum pushing their services....

Attilio is on top of it and creating a new more private group so it doesn't happen again and will update here in due course.
Thank you adam04

Looking forward to seeing you again in North Wales! :)

All,

a brief message to offer my apologies to those who were offended by the intrusion in the WhatsApp group of a web-bot that exploited the link published on this thread.

The idea was to facilitate the creation of a group - same as last year, same approach - to make it easier to communicate ahead and during the meet-up and facilitate the circulation of information, alerts etc.

Unfortunately, sometimes technology has its downsides: the bots scanning our website don't just gather information but sometimes are guided by people to exploit it and the "dating site" was an example. A bit like spam we find in our inboxes.

Again, I am sorry that happened. It was not me to include that "user" nor I avail of the services of that dating site as I am sure nobody in this group does.

I am disappointed that some fellow forum members on this group were quick to label the incident as a consequence of my lack of professionalism - as if I did this as a job.

I invited them again on the secure group, I hope they will stay and I hope we will all enjoy a great edition of the North Wales Run in late April! :driving: :thumbsup:

Hope we can have a pint in Oswestry before the run and have a laugh at this small incident.

All the best,
Attilio

No offence caused here and no apology needed either. You spent your own spare time to set up something to help us all out, make the trip easier & more enjoyable and then some T**t spoils it by spamming. It was quickly remedied and no real harm done :thumbsup:

Hi Attilio, thanks for your note clarifying matters...your apology is accepted, of course.

Side note I know but it’s a bit arrogant accepting an aopology that wasn’t necessary in the first place, this isn’t a pro outfit that’s charging you for its services, it’s a very well meaning member going out of his way to try to make life easier for others for zero reward. A better response would have been to say, no problem, thanks for your efforts, no apology needed imho.

Not having a pop or wanting to start a bun fight but it grates a little when people go out of their way to help. :thumbsup:
