Good to see you can kick abusers off, keep them off and delete all posts at the same time.
Good riddance.

Looks like script-mojo is back again...

Yes, it seemed to be a script, all the posts were evenly spaced in time.
Mojo has written scripts before, one to systematically delete all your posts on the forum. He used that to delete his thousand posts or something before he spat the dummy.

There is indeed a youtube channel, no electronics content whatsoever other than him filming a TV showing various blogs including EEV and mikes stuff and using it to complain about Virgin Media in the UK, because he can't make his telly work.

But his later stuff is getting angry at very trivial car "incidents" on his travels that anyone would just brush off. I mean this is no crazy drunk russian driver on dashcam stuff, or "Do you know who I am? I'm Ronnie Pickering!" hilarity.

It seems he is a lane hogger driving strictly under the limit on his speedo (allowed to read +10%/-0%) and (trying to) cause mayhem in his wake.

He probably has a favourite road bridge he hangs out under...

All the poor people who posted comments about seeing dicks all over the forum now have no context! 
"Oh sure.. Dicks all over the forum eh??? Riiiiiiiight...."

Still somewhere I hope someone is abusing the situation to post crap and pin it on Mojo.

Nope, VK97C is Mojo-chan, plus the other accounts that have been posting dick pics and other info. It's all him and I have the proof.

Time to reveal his personal data. Name, address, country, employer, function, website.
It's good people can be hidden behind an profile on forums, but when somebody abuses it, makes multiple profiles, attacks the functioning of that forum, that right falls away.

It's not like somebody having an unpopular idea, deviant way of telling things, it's even not somebody pushing others to do illegal stuff, it's personally attacking by every means the functioning of a site.

I seem to recall you are quite OK with agreeing to requests to delete posts from people wanting to delete their posting history here.  Is that your current position?

Everyone is free to delete all their own posts on here themselves, I don't have to do it.
If you started a topic then those posts can't be removed.

Quote
Were you even asked to delete the posts in the Mojo case?

A few years back, yes. He had "had enough" (guess the topic) and asked me to delete them all. With hindsight I foolishly gave him a chance to do it himself and he changed his mind and stayed. In the latest dummy spit he deleted most of them himself with a script he wrote, but then asked me to delete the rest and his account. I happily obliged.
Since then he has come back under multiple accounts and posted pick pics and other details, seems he can't just let it go.

I don't advocate compulsory use of real names

You can't, apart from being a stupid idea, it's unenforceable.

Only an idiot would use his real name on a public forum.

- A more sensible response would be to change the forum rules to force people to use their real names. 
- And just why is it good that people can be hidden behind a profile on forums?
- I don't advocate compulsory use of real names
How do these things add up?


Seriously, don't say stupid things like that in public.
You call it stupid, and therefore I can not say those specific things?
You are just the same PolCo like him. Everybody knew and saw that before. Calling things "stupid" without arguments, logic or reason and then talk about something else.

Seriously, so much humbuk over one nutter? The best, and only way of dealing with trolls of this type is to not give them attention - ignoring them. You can be sure that if a heated forum wide discussion with 50 participants is initiated after each dick bombing, somewhere in the background the perpetrator is laughing his childish ass off, possibly pleasuring him self vigorously to all the attention he's getting and patting himself on the back. If rules are changed to the minor annoyance of the general forum population, you can be assured that the perpetrator will be in a special kind of personal heaven.
Believe it or not, pointy haired people do exist!

I hope that won't be necessary, and if necessary, they do something with it.

I was sympathetic to Mojo when I saw a rabid mob descend upon him. Sympathy has waned somewhat of late, but it doesn't change the fact that I believed he was unfairly and harshly treated. I see no benefit for anyone to continue to cast nasturtiums at Mojo. He's gone and there's and end to it. Hopefully he will calm down and move on constructively.

 :-+ seconded. A rabid mob which, it's worth pointing out, has continued to harass him on other forums and social media after he had left here.

To my knowledge they have not. He claimed those same people were impersonating him on here after he left, when in fact it was him doing it. Yes, I have proof.
Can we forget all about mojochan please?

As for the last sentence. It is so ironic I am certain it is lost on you.

Ironically, your off topic post in the moderator report thread should be reported to moderators.

If a trolls posts are ignored then there will be no loss of conext when they are removed. If you spot something just let us know, we will remove it and it will be like it was never there. Simples!

On the forum I help run, all newly signed-up users' posts are moderated (visible only to the moderators).  This prevents a lot of spam being visible to the forum members.  Adds a bit of overhead for the mods, but means zero spam (or morons) get through.

Somtimes I feel more drastic moderation is needed at times. Drastic as in deleting of all recent off topic posts in threads that have gone off the rails, rather than just the most agrivating posts. However thankfully this community is on a whole rather civil, so far it doesn't seem heavier moderation is required. It would be a real shame if interesting offtopic discussion wasn't allowed to prosper. Most large forum based internet communities have had to become heavily moderated, the problem with them is that natual communication doesn't stick on to a single topic for long without deviating and evolving. This leaves these communities feeling very sterile and boring.

So huge props to Dave and his moderators for their efforts in keeping the balance, it certainly can't be easy.

New spammer on the forum or just a noob in need of education? Looks pretty spammy.
