Could someone please remove all of the posts by "chelsiya bakkar"? They are off-topic advertisements and are spammed indiscriminately throughout the forums. Here's one of them:

I sent the following e-mail to everyone I could find who is associated with the advertised site. You may want to send them something more official.

Subject: Please stop spamming the JavaRanch.com forums
One of your employees, Chelsiya Bakkar, has posted the same advertisement to at least 17 different forums at JavaRanch.com. This will only annoy a large number of people and will not win your organization any friends. Please stop.
Here's one of the posted ads:

and here's a list of them:

An apology to the folks at JavaRanch would be highly appreciated as well.

Sent them several messages using the feedback link on their site.
They don't even list JavaRanch as a Java Resource :roll: .
Deleted that last post too - sigh.

Ahem... now another user is posting the same ad:
https://coderanch.com/t/133011/Security/Authentication-LDAP-Java
Weren't these folks also responsible for some job ads that were spammed here yesterday?
 
Surfs up space ponies, I'm making gravy without this lumpy, tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
