Something meaner, like a rocket cannon. :P

In all seriosity, I would agree with Meik based on misrepresentation of the phpBB Group and phpBB.com, as well as possible fraud, and could be liable for damages.

Perhaps (re)moving this topic would be best as well?

Nah, my own curiosity is getting the better of me. I'd like to see this fake legal representative come to a real legal representative and see what happens then. ^_^

Though I suppose we don't need anybody playing judge, jury, and executioner ...

All threats of "severence" are clearly fake. Acyd Burn is the phpBB Team Leader, I'm sure he would know if there was a legal department or not. Also, there is no phpBB network, isn't there a law that states that the internet is a place of wild content or something like that, and no real solicitor would write like that.
Also, they have no right to close down your forum because one of your members posted bad content and you removed it.

Aaaand we'll stop it here.

I'll leave the topic in case the Managers decide to share any results, but personally I doubt this will happen.
