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.

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:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/133011/Security/Authentication-LDAP-Java
Weren't these folks also responsible for some job ads that were spammed here yesterday?
