Ban Sarah And Meshy petition

By LordInfidel ·
Look enough is enough.

For the past several days we have been bombarded by these 2 ignorant responses and interruptions.

I am urging ALL republic members to sign off to this petition to have these people removed from the republic or at least silenced.

Do not reply to them, don't answer their questions, don't help them. IGNORE THEM! Period.

Please just reply to the post and just put the words "Ban Them!" in the Subject. No message is required. They should get the hint.

I'm over their ingorance. Let's get back to helping people.

Don't meddle in the affairs of sysadmins, for they are subtle and quick to anger.

If your curious why...

by LordInfidel In reply to Ban Sarah And Meshy petit ...

I feel this way.

I'm sure some of you are asking yourselves why I feel this way. Well, I have been responding to these 2 since their first posts. At first I tried to be nice, even playful. But then I was accused of being mean.


Take a look at this post.

Ya know, I've tried being nice.

But she/he/whatever decided to take on an innocent person asking a legitimate question.

They crossed theline and that pissed me off.

I doubt that they will ever try to contact me. My profile says it all. As I am sure that there are other "talented" people out there in the republic who are more than willing to make sure that they can't come back here.

No need to reply to this, just Ban Them!

Who will we add tomorrow?

by admin In reply to Ban Sarah And Meshy petit ...

It appears that at a minimum, ComputerChick, Fossil and especially Kelly2121, who effectively had some believing she was against some of the former in a ploy to pull others in, have appeared today. Who tomorrow?

This ban may work if we stuck to real technical questions for a while, but hopefully this isn't the equivalent of someone targeting, taking over and ruining an IRC channel, but rather a short term person having fun with us all -albeit at our expense at times.

Still, I'd hate to see the fun side go away, that's a big part of why I come here. In fact, I have posted a number of technical questions that recieved no answers here, so I mainly use other forums for those.

Anyway, I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that it may be futile to ban particular users here given the current structure of TR.

If it gets too bad I assume that someone at TR will start checking the logs and finding a true identity. They are probably just hoping they go away first, which they probablywill.

Look...She pissed me off!

by LordInfidel In reply to Who will we add tomorrow?

First I'm no newbie as I'm sure you know., we have replied to each others post's now for a while.....

I can take a joke as well as anyone else. Which I did in the beginning. (I was one of the first people to respond back to her)

But several posts later and personal accusations made towards me from them. Plus they blasted an innocent bystander for asking a question. That drew the line for me.

They don't belong here. If it was an isolated thread, then I can say fine whatever. But they have been infecting all threads with their BS.

I think it is fair to say that once you start interfering with legitimate posts then you have crossed the line of fun/amusement.

That is my point. I'm not some uptight a##hole, (i have tat's, piercings and long hair). I can take the personal insults thrown out by them. But when they attack a newcomer, then it's open hunting season on them.

They crossed the line here, not me. I'm just enforcing the no fly zone.

I'm a Sys admin- I think that says it all.

He/She/It pi**ed me off, too

by eBob In reply to Look...She pissed me off!

But banning seems, at best, to be unworkable.

Let's just all try to ignore the stupidity. Eventually it will just go away, if we "nerds, dweebs and geeks" (as if that's some kind of insult?) actually care.

But when we get an email from one of these characters...!

I was hoping that would work too. I did get e-mail, but it was through the TR peer service, which strips the headers....

Technical Questions...

by JimBb In reply to Who will we add tomorrow?

...belong in the Q&A, not here. I see a l?t of those pass by, unreplied, in the discussion forum, and I'm sure they would get the proper attention if they were used in the proper way.

And about the banning, I think you're right, what's the point? I could get myself 25 different ID's in as many minutes, and start discussions with myself just to see how soon how many people get annoyed. And if TR bans those 25, I just make 25 other.
The only right thing to do is to ignore them. They'll goaway and play somewhere else. After all, the goal of their game is attention.
No attention=no fun.

Good point Jim

by TomSal In reply to Technical Questions...

I understand everyone here...Dark certainly is correct I feel (hey I said Ban them too up there) for being so annoyed with those posters (check the new discussions today 10.8.01, the "SaraMiller" ID posted like 3 new threads..I'm sure they are winners).

But after thinking about it Jim is correct...the name of the game is all about attention. So let's just deprive them of it.

Oh and by the way---

That was my point

by LordInfidel In reply to Good point Jim

You all have hit the nail on the head.

I wanted everyone to know that these people won't be tolerated here. And to infom everyone to just stop posting to them.

I'm not trying to preach, but I noticed that people kept posting to them and they kept going back and forth.

My whole goal here was to kill their threads and make them feel unwanted.

I for one will be avoiding their threads and hope others will do the same.

Ignorance may be bliss, but knowledge and information is the key.

Thanx for your opinions. Just deprive them of the attention.
