    I was just wondering why people who have been clearly banned are allowed to open another ID and keep posting? The mods certainly know, but don't seem to care. IE Aqua4ever=TWguru. Isn't it the mods jobs to monitor this?

    they don't ban just your name. they ban your ip address. so if you have a dynamic ip (changes constantly) you can get back in.
    i got banned for YEARS, cause my ip address stayed the same. couldnt even view posts, nevermind post something.
    never did find out why i got banned....if a mod reads this, could you tell me?

    some people will sign up to use an ISP masker - there's plenty of sites on the web that advertise that type of service.

    Ian has been advise about his so it's in his hands. He's the only one who can do anything about it.


    Any further posts about the mods not doing anything is just taking cheap shots in the air.

    No, I am going to have to disagree. Standing up for what is right and just is never a cheap shot.

    Yes I know all about IP anonymiser because I use one, but that isn't the point at all. People like Aqua and Quigon have been posting under new IDs and don't even hide the fact. The have been doing it for quite a while, and the mods/admin has clearly known about and has not acted. Why? It doesn't take a week-three weeks to solve the problem.

    It does when there is a host of issues that have to be addressed and people have jobs and families. It does when attention is averted to trolls or others who jam up eamils and PM's complaining.

    Quigon is something and I probably other mods were not aware of as he sledom post on the football forums. If he was banned it was probably because of something on the political forum. If you are positive about it then you should PM a mod on that forum and share your knowledge.

    You know as well as i do that patters is a total piece of crap, so it doesn't matter. Just another case in point of poor moderation.

    Maybe if you cannot handle the load and responsibility of being a mod, you should not be one or encourage the use of new mods to help the load. Keegs would be a great mod and has my vote.

    Fact remains that Aqua is still posting and nothing is being done about it.

    Dude, if it bugs you so much, don't come to the site. It's as simple as that.

    let me ask this--you have 7 posts and seem to have an intimate knowledge of Patters--were you banned?

    personally, it shouldn't concern anyone whether a poster is banned, returns, is unbanned, is temporarily reinstated, etc. life is bigger than what happens on Ian's messageboards...

    this statement has no bearing

    you asked a general question on the forum--if there are guidlines regarding who should and who should not respond, please list them in the original post in the future

    hahahahahahahaah

    I appreciate the kind suggestion but i am very busy with a full time and part time job on the side, and i could never do this for free. It seems pretty aggravating and kinda difficult. Also, IAN would sooner have NEM be a mod than myself.:singing: so i really don't even have to explain why i couldn't do it, because it would never happen.

    I just would leave the part about me out next time. They won't take you seriously.

    OOOW, a cyber warrior tough guy. After reading you're posts I think you're just as obnoxious as the people you mentioned as being banned. Maybe you need a good banning. :eek:
