Instead of using your sockpuppet Thruradar account to report two to three year old posts why not get a life instead, you sad pathetic sack of shit? Maybe go back to writing your crap fanfics or something?

Now that's offensive.

This evening a couple of posts from 2007/8 were reported by this pathetic pile of dogshit, and I've switched to live ammo.

Yeah, I understand a little better now. I'm sitting reading the Arizona shooting thread he posted in a little ago and it makes for interesting reading. Amazing how stupid some people can be.

I've never understood the whole getting another account and using it to back up your arguments thing. And reporting disagreements from several years ago? Really?

I was just wondering why your, perfectly reasonable, rant was posted in the New Comics Hub. Wouldn't the general discussion be more suitable?

That'll make for an interesting discussion in 2015.

Yeah, it worth noting he has never actually complained about responses to his own posts, so I'm not really sure why he feels the need to use an alt ID. Especially as we're not likely to pay attention to someone who does nothing but report posts (at irregular intervals no less) even if we hadn't spotted it was him. An actual proper* poster complaining will always be taken more seriously, whatever their history than an alt.










*To obvious a set up for a punchline for anyone to bite surely?

Eh, it's not particularly reasonable and I'm going to get a couple of broken fingers from the admins for it, cowardice just presses my buttons.

I posted it here because this is the forum he's been reporting posts from; a direct response in another thread a while ago was ignored. I'm not entirely sure why the account isn't banned considering it's a known sockpuppet; possibly because it's quite funny and I haven't had an e-stalker this tragic since good ol' Rock.

OK. maybe not reasonable, but entertaining anyway. And wow, that's strict admins!

Many years ago, Rock found a hidden (i.e. unused) forum and filled it with stuff like this, as if post counts meant something;

http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock1.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock2.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock3.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock4.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock5.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock6.html
http://tfarchive.com/_temp/denyer/rock7.html

Probably more mentally ill than immature.

I'm going to go and try to sleep off flu. While I'm out cold, could we possibly knock on the head anything that's likely to put off less confrontational members or readers?

More than a little curious why the Thruradar account wasn't closed the first time it was used for what amounts to silent trolling and sockpuppetry.

Curious thing I did notice is that Snavej is actually editing some of his older posts: -

http://tfarchive.com/community/showp...7&postcount=54

Adding to his own wet-brained arguments two years down the line where no-one can see and call him on his bullshit.

Funny seeing the normally calm Denyer being so blunt. Clearly Snailsmasher was not getting the point.

That is very strange behaviour indeed. Is there a reason why Snajev is still a member?

We're mostly adults. The censor's there as a guide and to encourage people to demonstrate slightly more imagination... all I'm really bothered about personally is that the boards remain welcoming to the average enthusiast and patron of fine giant ****ing robots. Keeping it out of thread titles is a start.

Never actually posted in a public forum AFAIK. Most people won't have twigged that the Report Post function creates a thread in a private forum so that staff can see and act on the reports.

Revisionism's rather pathetic, but the time stamp on edits does make it pretty obvious.

[Not sure if this would be better in the club house, but as it's being discussed anyway I'll put it in this thread, if its inappropriate I'll move it]

Considering he's only used the account for harassments sake (albeit in a rubbish and half arsed way) I'd say a banning would be in order.

The mininmum would be we give him the same option we gave the chap who started an alt account to have conversations with themselves to say how brilliant they are, and offer him the chance to pick which name he prefers and then merge the accounts with a note not to do it again.

At the very least a PM to both accounts saying we know and being very emphatic we're not going to pay any attention to old thread reports from an alt ID?

Oh, and break Cliffy's fingers, natch.




EDIT: Oh, and the reason given for editing that post is a bit dickish, "Reason: Anyone who overlooks this stuff is no expert and should get off the net". Err, considering it's a recent edit everyone overlooked it...

I don't think you can really call that harassment. For one thing, most people probably assume that Report Post goes to admins or at least have some disconnect that if they report someone who is staff that the report doesn't go to that person.

I banned the alt ID last night with a note attached to say stick to the original account.

If said person wants to start fresh, happy to park the old account and leave a new one active. Don't think there's anything banworthy there. Stupid, but not banworthy.

The intent seems to be specifically to get cliffy banned/suspended, I'd say that's harassment. Like I said though, it's rubbish and half arsed but that's not much of an excuse.

Cool, missed that.

The reports said, in total,

"This was pretty rude." -- http://tfarchive.com/community/showt...499#post715499

"This is rude." -- http://tfarchive.com/community/showt...620#post716620

"This is pretty offensive." -- http://tfarchive.com/community/showt...451#post671451

"Littered with offensive and bilious comments." -- http://tfarchive.com/community/showt...297#post485297

All of which is fairly reasonable assessment, with bonus marks for "bilious" in a context that doesn't involve Games Workshop paints.

edit:

Bloody hell, the last one was from 2006.
