Why are random name ***hole's posts no longer being dealt with?
Posted: Posted May 16th by KnokkelMillennium

Why are users even allowed to go under other names just to stalk and harass other users?

Ya well when people treat you like they treat me me there's a reason to complain a lot.

He posted in this thread:
http://gtx0.com/view.php?post=106024
And he posted in other random threads that I can't recall usually in the politics forum. They only use these alt names to bait me and attempt to cause trouble/a shitstorm. It's hard to miss. If they had good intention they wouldn't use random names for this.

Like this has gone on for quite a while and idk how you missed it. The only ones I linked are more recent too.

Have you considered the fact that you are getting trolled and that it is happening with the specific purpose of getting you to act like this?

Ignore what that trolls are doing and they will eventually stop. I have a phrase I have said since 2005: Don't feed the Trolls.

Seriously, don't let them get to you.

Probably because the staff has abandoned us.

Knux, I do read your posts from time to time. I just don't say anything because I don't have anything worth saying for your posts. I even read Ghowilio's posts.

That's almost literally what I said and just another reason that it should be dealt with. It's less him but more what he's saying in front of others that bothers me. Also if my suspicions are correct he did a lot more than just troll while I was banned.

Well thanks. And well I guess I don't expect much. Maybe my posts would be easier to actually reply to if I was more passive regarding these matters, but that's just not me.

Look, Im not a mod or admin but if you guys think that the moderators have abandoned you guys or are otherwise fucking with you. Then leave.

I'm not saying that and I don't think Helius has said that, but at the very least some have definitely grown more apathetic and others just don't see a reason to do anything about it for... some reason. Then some are inactive, then others are busy and they don't actually see it or something.

And then I'd actually go as far as to say that at least one has a problem with my presence on the site and won't do anything about it on purpose.

Why should I leave though if I don't want to? I presented a chance for me to just be banned (I doubt they'll actually do it though). If I REALLY REALLY want to leave I'll probably just make sure they have to ban me JUST for good measure. I think I have things under control now but just in case that would be a good way to prevent it considering I now longer have the same connection that made it so easy to bypass years ago.

But ya, mods being apathetic isn't really high on my list of reasons why I sorta want to leave. No need for you to pretend like this site is perfect and worthy of constant protection.

I also don't get why Famov stopped dealing with him as he usually tagged my responses to him along with his posts so eagerly but now he just stopped for some reason. I mean he's clearly here to see some of it.

I think part of your problem is that a while back (maybe even a year now?) certain members of the team stepped down and those certain members were the ones who usually dealt with stuff like this.

I know I used to ban shitposting altnames/random names, at least one of which got unbanned after I stepped down.

@KnokkelMillennium:

This should have been posted in the Dispute Resolution Forum.

That said, I will tag and lock the threads and IP ban this person for 1 month to see if this helps.

Could be that ya.

I already tried doing that a few times already and it didn't seem like anything was done before. So that's why. Also at this point it's about multiple posts so it seemed fitting. But thanks for doing what you did.

A lot of the staff never intended to do anything about things like this. There are long-beloved shitposters and other toxic individuals on this site that are essentially buletproof, no matter how undesirable they make the atmosphere.

Good advice. I'm sure that's how Xhin wants his site to grow and improve.

I'm being sarcastic with my comment. Though I agree with null about

There seems to be some inactivity levels around the staff (or they are just hiding in their secret forum).

I typed a long reply to this but decided it was pointless.

At the end of the day I think there are far fewer active mods than people realise and most of them are only supposed to moderate their specific forum (Arch and Famov exclusive to World for example).

The other issue is that typically Xhin will overrule most bans, especially if people private message him, so some mods probably decide its not worth bothering for that reason.

Ah, sorry. His posts really were slipping past my attention, and I intend to continue cleaning up after him as needed.

The explanation is understandable, but also indicative of a larger problem. This site does not justify board-specific rules/mods. I've been saying it for a long time and I'll keep saying it: move to global-only.

>The other issue is that typically Xhin will overrule most bans

Classic Xhin
