You have to admit, your post looks like the kind of thing a spammer would post to have someone (same person with a different account) reply to offering a link to the "solution".
If that's not the case, then I apologise.
Also, using the term "greedy evil company" to refer to the organization hosting the forum in your first post ever is not a good way to make a good first impression on a forum.
