    Hi, administrator.

    Please replace the words "full real first and last name"
    in Hosting Application forms

    with the words like ~nickname or login name~.

    Because real name is the confidential information
    for legitimate users in some countries.


    ps.
    Are there the mistypes in
    ~Shared Hosting Application Application~ ,
    ~Reseller Hosting Application Application~

    (http://www.instafree.com/community/index.php?applicationform/reseller-hosting-application.3/form
    http://www.instafree.com/community/index.php?applicationform/shared-hosting-application.2/form )

    ?

    Thanks for the suggestion on the typos. We will get those fixed.

    Unfortunately, we cannot get rid of the real name requirement. If you can't give us your real name, email address, etc., we can't give you hosting. We have to have something to give the authorities should you abuse your account, and unfortunately, a nickname or login name does not give us the information we need.

    How can you check the reliability of the data
    being entered in the field ~Real Name~ ?

    I assume you can not.

    That's correct that we can't really check. But at least we have something to go on. Normally if it came down to an abuse issue (spam, child pornography, etc.) we would just turn your IP address(es) into the authorities and let them get the information.

    Hence IP address is used for a virtual attempt
    to identify the resumable abuser.
    Not the data which you assume has been entered by the abuser
    as the Real Name.

    In result, you are vainly preventing Humans from signing up
    on the first page of the Application form -
    which not obligatorily occur to be out of the few legitimate users.

    That's fine.

    If you don't want to supply the information we ask you to provide, you are more than welcome to get hosting someplace else. We are providing our service for FREE. We make absolutely no money off of you. If you can't respect our requests, we don't want you here anyway, to be honest.

    No, it was deleted permanently. This policy is not going to change, so you are just wasting your time trying to convince me otherwise.

    Did you defend your forum by a Trash board ?

    Surely XenForo does provide this opportunity.

    And which other someplaces
    did the ~Own post Edit~ buttons disappear to ?

    Please set the Own post Edit permission to Endless.

    It does indeed support "Trash". Your post had no reason to go there. It was deleted permanently.

    Like I said, the policies here will not be changing. If you don't like the policies here, go get hosting elsewhere.

    Had no reason to go to the News and Announcements board
    or had no reason to go to the Trash ?

    Is there a reason to keep Own posts in Own topics ?

    Bryan
    I am studying the policy.
    Both of hosting service and its support forum.

    Now the policy of the permanent deletion of Humans' posts
    with an opinion different to the forum's policy
    has affected me.
    Have i understood correctly ?

    Which words of the Terms Of Service / Acceptable Use Policy
    are describing the ~Different Opinions Deletion~ policy ?

    Please add them to the TOS, if not there yet,
    and quote them especially in your News and Announcements board.
    Thank you.

    Like I said, if you don't like our policies, you are welcome to go elsewhere. Don't really know why you are here in the first place, since we don't offer free hosting to Russia.

    I don't know if you do this on other hosts' forums as well, but it isn't going to happen here. I can delete your posts whenever I want and for whatever reason I want, and if you think I need to add that to the policies somewhere, you are out of your mind.

    We are done here.
