Please can we have a temporary ban on new users until the coding for the boards is fixed?
who come on, reply in a zillion threads, get banned, and render the threads unreadable in the process.
bit shit, really!
now that the unhinged div(s) that keep(s) signing back up know that there's no barrier to signing up, and banning them breaks old threads up.
sean likes the social board-main site analogy as pub-next-to-the-club analogy. which means that this a pub that's under the cosh of vandals, and wants to stay open, but doesn't bother locking the door after closing time. or something.
Done a decent job over the last 24hrs
Which mod would be the best one to fire a note of warning to at that time in the morning?
Theo? Or is there someone else up and about a bit earlier? If the account can be banned soon after it's set up, it might make clean up a bit easier.
really doesn't have much else to do with their life and spends most of their time on here anyway.
Sort of like me before i came a very important businessman.
We can't let the spammers change our way of life and ask the authorities to increase their power. WHERE WOULD IT END!
Silly fool, ruining it for people who just wanna enter competitions.
I don't have £2k to spend on developer time to fix things right now.
Tempted to come up with a Kickstarter-friendly idea to raise some money.
don't worry though, i won't charge 2k
I think that's a really really really good idea.
He's basically PMing me saying he's going to rape me.
Also, he has twitter and requested to follow me to send me abuse (and a lot of other people on here have received twitter death threats and abuse from him)
I have reported him and it looks like his account has been taken down. I'm not really sure what to do after this as its getting a little more serious for me than it is for everyone else. I'm not really happy with someone saying things like 'i will fuck you somehow, just watch out' etc
I know you all think this is 'feeding the troll' and giving him what he wants but rape and death threats are pretty serious imo.
You can report him to the police, I am happy to provide any and all information which will help with this matter. In fact, I think I may report him now. Pretty easy to get all the information on who it is.
but when I looked at his twitter feed as he requested to follow me, it showed a lot of abuse to joeymahone and you and andyvine etc.
All my PMs from him have disappeared now so I can't really prove anything?
I wouldn't have thought anything of it and just written it off but he's trying to contact me via other social medias and that really worries me. Its getting a bit too personal now.
You should definately go to the police.
Meo: if he PMs you again, you could always take a screengrab if you want a record of what he's said
have been deleted?
I might have recieved more overnight but they've gone. He seems to have turned it all to things based on me. Its making me a little uncomfortable and I wasn't worried until he tried targetting me on twitter earlier (obvs didn't accept his request and reported him)
the PMs will be in your inbox in the alert emails.
or is it the lonely Irish troll using a proxy?
And he'll probably just cry himself to death.
can't you give his details to Barry Bedsit and let him sort it out the old fashioned way with a stripped to the waist wrestle in front of a roaring log fire?
in a Great British Bake Off style comp.
