Off of this question.

There is a user who has now posted three questions I find offensive to the point where I edited them, and flagged for a mod.

At this point I'm beginning to wonder what he means by "do some moms" as mentioned in two of his posts. His third (and first) answer was simply a crude comment to the user about him possibly getting his trackpad sticky after watching porn.

Now he has posted a fourth answer while I was writing this up, and a fifth, sixth, and seventh afterwards.

What should be done in this case?

  • Wow, a year-long suspension. Haven't seen that before. – Michael Petrotta May 5 '10 at 3:54
  • Yep, and all the answers just got wiped out. That guy was a nut. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 3:57

    Well, a troll, really. A kid. Dime a dozen. – Michael Petrotta May 5 '10 at 3:58
  • The guy just won't quit. Perhaps a temporary (12hr) IP ban? – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:00
  • And now he actually posts something that looks like a good answer. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:06
  • I've run out of flags. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:11
  • Add another two posts from him, though that account was just banned. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:16

    Should you be able to regenerate flags if previous flaggings have been accepted by a moderator? – Andrew Grimm May 5 '10 at 4:44

    He claims to be unbannable. Anyone care to test? – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:44
  • @Andrew: Already writing up a question for meta about that. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:45

    Regardless of everything, you could have not put an unnecessary personal message to the troll. Also, seeing as you can edit posts, you should have removed the salutations on the question itself too. – perbert May 5 '10 at 15:54

    If I see another reason to edit I will remove salutations while I'm doing that. Forgive me for being a little irked by 13+ answers I edited, flagged, and ultimately had removed. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 19:57

Hey may need to be warned, officially. It doesn't look like he gets it from your edits.

If the problems persist, I'll greate a GUI interface using Visual Basic - see if I can track an ipaddress.

  • I haven't had this much to edit in weeks. He's definitely not getting it. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 3:48

    this user doesn't need a warning, they need a spanking. – quack quixote May 5 '10 at 4:10
  • @quack Note that I suggested a warning before @Josh added references to the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th offenses :) – Jonathan Sampson May 5 '10 at 4:11

    Make it eight or nine by now, I stopped keeping track. Spank away @quack. – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:15
  • @jon: ah. yes, noted. i didn't notice until there were quite a few. (13 posts across 4 accounts. so far.) – quack quixote May 5 '10 at 4:20
  • @quack Are you counting the meta posts too? – Josh K May 5 '10 at 4:32

This reminds me of the Jon Skeet incident.

    What does this have to do with this? And why isn't this a comment? – perbert May 5 '10 at 15:52
  • you know why @voy – Juan Manuel May 5 '10 at 15:59
  • @voy: It is basically a similar thing - a user creating multiple accounts and posting nonsense... – George Edison May 5 '10 at 16:33
