    Indeed, can't say I'm terribly excited about the banning, just means it will all start up again.

    I particularly will enjoy the mealy-mouthed "don't victimize >obvious pre-cam multi<, it's bullying, there's no proof", followed by >obvious pre-cam multi< playing up his victim status by saying, "I was going to leave, but I won't now, because I'm standing up to the bullies".

    Then the inevitable banning after he's destroyed most discussion, wonder who'll cop a ban for stating the bleeding obvious next time, odds-on Furball, I guess.

    as far as i can tell our only option is to ban all new posters for the foreseeable future. Just as well too. This place just isn't cliquey enough.

    I think I've made my feelings on the subject pretty clear.

    Thing is there's still one very obvious Precam multi already in situ and another who (my lawyers have advised me to say) one suspected very strongly who copped a ban before Bun did.

I honestly think it'd be better if you notify the reporting poster if their report results in an infraction. The default position being no response = no infraction. Blunt, but better than right now.

    I know you can only act if you have evidence, but people have known for ages that some of these multis are the same regular offender; yet that account has only had the occasional slap on the wrist despite regular trolling. It may sound harsh, but it makes you all look a little naive - though I know that not to be the case.
    If you want a response, don't use the report function; email us instead and outline your problem. We don't argue with members over email but if they have an issue we'll endeavour to give the best explanation we can should they email us.

    I think we have contacted members in exceptional circumstances about their reports.

    Yeah, so the report function is pointless then really. And judging by some people's feelings on the customer service when they do send an e-mail to the moderators, I feel like it would be a Sisyphean task.

    Only if you demand a reply. A lot of the time people don't need one.

    If someone sends an email to us that isn't just argumentative, we will respond to it. Sometimes it takes us a few days but we always do. Unfortunately we have a few members here who will respond to our responses ad infinitum with circular arguments so eventually we do have to stop replying in those cases. I certainly don't imagine we'd have to stop replying to you, though.

    Ahh, that's the way he works though, one, at least, already here, then he allows the established one to go mental, after its too ovious that it's him.

    It would almost be admirable if trolling wasn't the most pointless, and least life-affirming existence in history, including solicitors.

    I'd take offence at that, were it not the case that it's true

    Nah, it's only a Trojan Horse brought into this thread to derail it, IMHO.
