I was glad to see that people pretty much ignored his posts in the various threads and just carried on as if they weren't even there, at least as far as I saw. On other forums I'm on they'd likely have been quoted a hundred times with griping and commentary added, doubtless making the mod's jobs more difficult by adding to what they'd need to prune to remove the infection.

It was nice to see no one feeding the troll on a forum for a change.

And on that note, I hope everyone had a good Christmas (sans the ASCII schlong).

If it jams, force it.  If it breaks, you needed a new one anyway...

Giving this individual such nicknames is really below us, I believe.
We should just pity him, offer up our prayers that he gets help for his issues and has a normal life.

I agree on this, and I remember Dave's question to not mention the creature anymore.
The things he does on this forum now and then, are not to be laughed at, but signs of an unstable mental condition.
I hope he is professionally surrounded, and his treatment will soon start to give results.

Dear moderator

I have deleted the duplicate account. Only one account exists now.

Thanks

Could I just ask why are we locking threads because of one individual making inappropriate posts? i.e.: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/gigabyte-marketing-bs/

Why should everyone else suffer and be locked out of contributing because of some half-wit? By all means remove the offending posts and warn the user, after that, suspend them if they continue to carry on.

Agree.  Until you read the thread it gives the impression the manufacturer in question got it closed. But that is Simon's style, while Dave let's a lot more go before locking a thread.

Don't be a flipping idiot, you really believe the claim that the earth is heavier because water is now in the ground instead of the ocean. Just shut up or put up, or I'll put you up!

Moderators are called for civility.

That guy is hopeless. Stirring up discussions and then flagging around with his moderator status.

Maybe one (or two) moderator(s) for the Electronics subforum, one for Products, one for General, one for EEVBlog + Dave as the moderator overlord?

I've only seen a couple of people over the last couple of years that keep their heads as a rule. There's no way there are enough sane people around for that many moderators. I'll bet you bucks to beans that Dave turns down one a month.

Myself, I stay away from exciting threads. I've got better shit to worry about than twats on the internet.

And even the wankers have something interesting to offer from time to time.
I'd rather a Google clue, link, or some theory than "do this" (generally)

That guy should be moderated...

Hm, no way to report private messages? I've got a zero-poster by the name of Diana sending me multiple unsolicited requests to review products and post the results on this forum, do we consider that spam here when coming from someone who clearly registered only to send such PMs?
No longer active here - try the IRC channel if you just can't be without me :)

I got the same thing, now banned.
I don't think there is a mechanism to report private messages.

Is it a matter of policy that you ignore account deletion requests, or do they just evade notice?

Do you want your account deleted?
I don't actually get notified about account deletion requests.
