Maybe they should have copywirited the titles "Storm of War/Battle of Britain, Storm of War, Battle of Britain, Storm of War Battle of Britain, Storm of War; Battle of Britain" and "Storm of war - Battle of Britain" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I wonder if this is just an example of a forum set up that didn't have any protection against bogus user registrations in place.

It could have been that this is/was a legit site but some web-crawling spam bots have invaded.

Check out the main page (http://www.sowbob.com/). There are several sample news items posted (maybe an admin testing the new site setup?) from June/July 2004. Wasn't SOW originally announced (or rumored to be in the works) at around that time?

First time I read about SoW:BoB on this forum was spring 2004.

Kintaro, Megile is a english-spoken community's usual member (4000+ posts!), be sure he know english official Il2 forum!

SoW:BoB official french forum was creating by Ubisoft France during year 2006.
Though I'm moderator and though I'm close to the Ubisoft's french Assistant Community Manager, I don't exactly know why it was created so early... I just know that it was created in August 2006, by a request from Ubi's HQ... This forum was the first part of the future official SoW:BoB web site (I don't know anymore about this official website).

Sorry about my bad english...

Most of the IL2-1946 are older gentlemen to begin with. It would seem appropriate to advertise Viagra there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
