Shame, shame, shame. He must have thought people at NVMax are stupid. That's a very sneaky move, giving the receipient a different "From" and "Reply-To" address. Detonator 4 v20.80 and 21.60? Man, some kind of secret shit NVMax has with Nvidia.

Dude, check out my DVD Collection!
Crud....I didn't get a chance to read the link...can you guys fill me in?
I've got the complete text from NVMax and I'll post it if it clears with Bits or IA. Don't wan't to get anyone in trouble considering what the outcome of things might be over at m3dzone.
m3dzone has been updated to include a comment that states the "legal issues" are not related to anything between Zoiah and NVMax.
Let me know Admins.
OK, here we go:
Zoiah @ m3dzone = SCUM BAG
Well Mr Zoiah at m3dzone, this has got to have been your dumbest thing you could have possibly have done. Let me publically announce and embarrass you and the site that you work for (whom I recommend disown you and your bad practices).
Though I have spoken to you in the past I never knew you were quite like this. Lets start the story...
At 11.15 I recieved the following email.
I have recently been informed by my colleague that u might have downloaded the 20.80 binaries from our website. We will soon be providing our close partners with the latest detonator 4 drivers version 21.60. If you wish to receive information on how to download them, please send me the details you have received from my colleague earlier. Once we set up your details on our database, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to download the latest detonator 4 drivers from our site. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

How thick do you think I am Mr Zoiah?, so I decided to bounce an email to the nvidia address to see if it worked. Second I checked out http://www.pubpower.net and decided to sign up on the forum there (its the only page).
And low and behold everything brings up this error...
There seems to have been a slight problem with the database. Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.
An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
and the "Technical Staff" has an email to email@example.com
and then of course check http://www.zoiah.nl and its run by Mr Zoiah himself!
Such a shame for you that you decide to include your email address on that site. I have forwarded your email to NVIDIA whom i'm sure will love to here about how you are impersonating staff. It is also a shame for m3dzone, for I have ordered a complete ban on all news and links until you are removed as a news poster. Nice work Mr Zoiah! Nice work!
2 all the nvmax people
I would like to explain why this is such a big thing. I have worked real hard building up NVmax and its reputation with NVIDIA, especially after hosting leaked detonators for some time. It has not been easy. They trust me and I respect that trust, which is why you dont see the 20.80's floating about the net. Had I have sent the information to Zoiah thinking it was NVIDIA they would have been leaked and NVIDIA would have known it originated from NVmax. This would have cut the relationship I am trying to build completely and left the NVmax program as a total disaster. Zoiah has abused not myself, but the nvmax program and like the people whom use nvmax, that annoys me.
