I don't report much stuff.

Is it just me, or does the reason/comment field seem extremely small to you guys too?
I'd rather a Google clue, link, or some theory than "do this" (generally)

It does hold a lot of text though. I generally try to keep the report to about the length of a SMS (140chars) so you write a succinct description, the mods are not exactly clueless, they get the post, the comment and that really is all the info they need, your report needs not to be large.

It is a bit on the small side but as far as i know you can put as much text in as you want, I have received reports spanning a few lines and they have been useful but most often for spam or name calling the current box is enough.

If you have something that needs a detailed description you can always PM or email me.

Hi, All! Recently I wrote a post on EEVblog forum and I wanted to make some corrections to the post itself and to profile. But my account was banned for some unknown reason without any notice.

Can we please get Iliya the hell off this forum now? He's beyond using this as a place to bicker with his customers - he just publicly posted a customer's private address (and then deleted it) because he was pissed! That's 4chan shit. We don't need that here, this forum shouldn't be the gutter of the EE community. (post deleted from the rough vicinity of above this one).

Yeah - he went way beyond acceptable there.  All the rest was just him digging himself ever deeper  :popcorn:  but that was unacceptable (and probably criminal under The Data Protection Act as he lives in the UK).

I get that you are pissed and also that he posted someone's (non-customer) address because that person was in his own words fishing (to me looks more like trolling, by taunting Iliya that he was going to post a cracked version of Iliya's software). I also get that he is highly unprofessional (Iliya) but what I also get is that even if you are a costumer of his, you have somewhat a vested interest since after all you work on a competing product.

So, even if I don't like how Iliya behaves, I think there is a conflict of interest in your request and it's a bit unprofessional to even request it. Looking at that thread and how more wood keeps on being thrown to the fire with insults left and right I think there are more than one to blame.

Granted, Iliya gets rattled easily, but the people that keeps on rattling him are a bit at fault as well.

To me it all comes down to this, people complaint that the software is no longer free and keep pushing him to make it free, he doesn't want it but they keep pushing him, he explodes and everything gets out of control.

At least that's what my observation is from reading what happened.

Good thing it's only a request and I don't actually have the power to do it, then. Not that I wouldn't have done it a looooong time ago if I had. I have ops on #eevblog and he'd have lasted a good twenty minutes tops there. People like him drag down the level of any place they go.

Besides, it's plain to anyone that I'm not trying to get rid of him to encourage people to use KiCad. Come on. It's an open source project, I don't make any money off it, I have no interest in getting more people to use it. I have flat out told people not to use it until after the next release, because the previous one was complete crap.

And like I said, I think his ass should be banned for sharing private information, not arguing. That's not even slightly related to my work on KiCad. It's not related to insults, arguing, bickering between sides, or anything. I've never suggested someone should be banned here for arguing. I'd be a massive bloody hypocrite if I did that, I'm hardly the model for being unargumentative (at least on this forum). Iliya is only the second person I've ever wanted to ban, not counting outright spammers, since I joined this forum; the other was [email protected] who absolutely delighted in viciously attacking newbies. There is no excuse for what he did.

by taunting Iliya that he was going to post a cracked version of Iliya's software).

No, that it not true. I was referring to the free version Iliya gave us. No crack, no reverse engineering, no nothing. Everyone was able to download it by a simple click on a url. No EULA no, nothing. Just another free program. When he stated that he didn;t wanted users to share it I respected his wish. What he did before stating his will, was the bad thing.

What if he decides tomorrow that he doesn't want people using the free version on their computers? Send a Cease and Desist order to every email that download the free version (at some point you had to give him an email for the free version. Later on it was a single click to download)?

The "fishing" wasn;t intended as trolling him. I was expecting a response for the new version tbh. Something like "You can use/share the old version, but the one one is really better".

Send Dave a PM with a link to the post which you feel violates the rules?

You could also PM the poster asking them to consider removing/editing it.

I miss that curmudgeon.  :'(

Each year in our industry makes you like him more. After a couple of decades you'll come to appreciate his well balanced and mildly mannered online persona and start wishing for him to be more outspoken.  >:D

Let me guess, it's my recent post shutting down that thread that was headed down the feminist black hole?
