    Sir Alex

    Is this guy Precrambrian? I'm convinced it is, but he's yet to get a ban. Can someone check this account out?

    Whether he is or isn't, not really up for discussion (I imagine).

    It couldn't be, otherwise he'd be banned...surely. Unless a banning only applies to a username, so changing it means everything's ok again.

    modz take the approach that when he's posting "well", they don't ban him as it only prompts more **** posting from his next multi. They've essentially reached a compromise where we all get to put up with his general stupid trolling in order to avoid the worse stuff he has shown he can pull out.

    I was under the impression that it was only a lack of evidence keeping him here. Pretty sure a couple of his other counts caused no bother and were banned just for being him.

    Start it I say! Or at least I would if I wasn't setting a good example because I'm a staff member.

    Yeah, I was under this impression too.

    I figured the mods just got bored of chasing him. At least he's now just your run-of-the-mill garden troll rather than the genetically engineered super-troll he was previously.

    Reckon he does a good impression of how the real Taggart would post if he had an account on here tbh.

    He's been good in his latest guise and I think CC would be poorer for it if he was banned. He's one of those posters that keep CC ticking, will post in every thread and just keep debate flowing and that pretty important imho. Has his dire moments, but so does everyone else.

    Regardless of anything, the "keep trying enough and you'll eventually be let around perma-bans" approach is not a good one. Sets dangerous precedent. Personally I don't and never have really minded Pnottath\Precambrian (seems I've missed some of his worst posting) but you cannot be allowing him or anyone else to duplicate their way out of permas. If you're going to let him off, un-ban him and merge all of his accounts, don't just let the latest duplicate off.

    CW bannings aren't governed by human rights laws - there is no reason mods can't ban an account just because of lack of evidence of the strength which would stand-up in a court of law.

    I'd say if polled about 90% of regular CW users would say they're fairly sure this Sir Alex account is Precambrian. I'm also fairly sure this "Avada Kedavra" character is likewise.

    In general agree, altohugh it's obviously important that nobody gets banned on a 'whim' because that would be damaging to the forum's wider reputation. If there isn't evidence of a dupe then a psoter shouldn't be banned for it, IMO.

    Avada Kedavra has been banned today or yesterday, interestingly enough. The plot thickens...

    Agree totally, it seems like with Precamb the attitude has been' "You're banned...oh wait, you're back and seem to be posting ok...you're banned...oh wait, you're back and seem to be posting ok...you're banned...oh, wait etc etc"

    Personally I think the ban either stands or everyone who has been banned before should get a chance again if they come back under another name and get away with it for a while.

    If Sir Alex is Precamb I'd agree he has been decent since his return. Regardless of this though he should go if he is who people think he is.
