Couldn't help but notice the above when I went on the boards.

Member Profile.

I'm curious: is this the first time an account with zero posts has been banned?

--------------------
Hey! One more post until I reach an utterly meaningless milestone. Hooray!

There have been a couple banned without making a post (various reincarnations of Public Enemy #1 spring to mind).

Actually, that is pretty funny, I just noticed. Like saying, "Welcome, E.D.F. You are banned."

We've actually banned quite a few people who had zero posts, it just usually doesn't come to anyone's attention.

Extremely offensive profiles / PDNs and links to cracks in the profile are usually the cause of these bannings.

I take it that was Eddy, although I don't know how you pinned him without him saying anything.

If it's Ed, I'm sure he'll try to evade his ban next September. ;)

Or maybe he'll come back in a few days. I can hear him already..."What was I banned for? I just joined this community! I didn't post a single message! I would've been good if you would've given me a chance!"

Yeah, he won't wait until September, if his past indications of determination (and all-around bloody-mindedness) are worth anything.

Drat, does this mean his IP-ban has to be widened again? It already shut out Nazgul...

1) Ed was a member who is rather unstable and dangerous. He was banned for flooding the forums and flaming. He has tendencies to stalk members on IM programs and has made several attempts to hack the boards. These efforts include plotting to send out keystroke recorders to members to hijack accounts. He also has a habit of sending me a lot of vulgar e-mails asking to be reinstated.

2) How we determine/verify the true identity of members varies on a case by case basis and is not necessary to discuss. Doing so would help people evade bans. If you don't know, you probably don't need to know.

Yeah, ok, i didn't mean you'd tell me, i don't even care anyway, i just got concerned ... maybe i should've asked if you know for sure that it is a harm_want_to_do_person

I thought most of his cursing was related to vegetables and relatively harmless... and I didn't know he was plotting hijackings...

Well, now I have a reason to dislike him/her based on more than annoyance.

If only we could somehow make him work FOR us... The ferret threat would be quashed with ease...

Anyway, I noticed the name, and tried to forget about it. But I also recieved many emails, and various attempts to speak to me through IM, so I'm guessing Ed decided that he'd try and come back here too.

The sad thing is, the last time I spoke to him, he saw himself as some kind of Che guevara figure... Without the reference, of course.

Dangerous? Unstable? hijacking? Stalking? Emails?

You got to be kidding, right?

You, more than most Thralni, should know that Ed was, and I say this in the greatest of respect, a "nutjob".

Still, this attention is probably making him giddy with excitement (after all, banned members can still view the boards), and I doubt he needs any more encouragement to return!

I don't think we have to worry about EVERY new member, Magma. Or about any, in fact.

I'm gonna stop posting in this thread now.

Ed personified unstable. The rest of it came after he was banned and mostly in the form of emails.

—Alorael, who wishes Ed well somewhere else. Some people aren't ready for forum life and Ed isn't.

You don't want to disclose that psychic for discovering potential annoyances before they occur like in Minority Report.

I didn't know that Ed had done so many bad things beyond the flooding and flaming. I'm glad he's blocked.
