Spammers/trolls/secondary screenames!!

Any mods left here that can fix the troll/spammer/secondary screename guys that keep popping up here. How is it a troll is granted PM access with 9 posts, yet legit members have to wait the required 50?
A moderator had to approve the name and authorize PM capability to promote this troll. Whoever it is needs their mod privileges revoked if they haven't already been! Have a feeling that's the case here
Crap like this is running this forum into the ground.
Sincerely,
An old school member that hates to see this forum disappear like the rest

Just Shaggy and I

/spammer/
There has been about 5 a day that I've had to remove. I do not have the {Rights} to ban IP's

secondary screename
I work them as identified. If I cant positively identify them as a secondary account of another member, I have tools to keep an eye on them


guys that keep popping up here.

The rules for PM's were changed back to what they were when Patrick started this place when the Vipers of the World folded. If you have screen names that you know of that can't PM, post it here and I'll look into it


A moderator had to approve the name
Admins and Mods have never approved names. Even though that is a capability of vBulletin it is not employed on this site

and authorize PM capability to promote this troll.
Not something Admins and Mods authorize. It's part of the base programming in vBulletin


Whoever it is needs their mod privileges revoked if they haven't already been!
Call Shaggy and tell him you want me gone then. At that point, you will have to live with only Shaggy watching

Have a feeling that's the case here
You are allowed your feelings

Crap like this is running this forum into the ground.
The biggest effect on this type of forum is social media (ie Facebook). I see it on a number of sites

As an old school member, Ive seen a lot to include the crap that went down on the original forum with ekool. I remember when we came her it was by the members for the members and the crap that flew was part of the day. Anyone remember Wifey, Stinker the original (not the PC version/Businessman) theSickess, Silverback, Includemeout and the list goes on. Our skin was thicker, our mood was lighter, the fun was greater and well, no one needed a safe space or worried about PC or micro agressions, but that was old school

With all that said it doesn't mean shit to any of us. We all post under whatever this new environment is. So tell me, what kind of environment do you want. the ekool environment, where he systematically banned anyone that that crossed a line ( a line that moved every day), or an environment like Patrick set up or something in between

Tell me

You have to post it here. if you PM me, I will delete it without reading

Every single new member has NO PM privileges! It's always been this way! You say it's gone back to some other rules? I've never seen it change? Ask any new member here. They cannot and never have been able to PM without 50 post to ensure they weren't spam! But somehow a troll with a derogatory screenname pops up and automatically has PM privileges? A mod had to approve that! Now based on what your saying any new member can PM, post in sale ads, etc? Nope, never been that way. Not that I recall anyways. But Scotlikscock somehow is approved even though out of 9 posts, half of them attack me? Yeah that's a new values member for sure!
Jeff I consider you a valued member of this forum and for you to say this is ok baffles me? Yes IP addresses of secondary screennames or trolls were checked and found and deleted and primary screename was banned.
Ask Dom, Hank or any of the other IP address game players that were banned.
This has nothing to do with feelings, it has to do with what's just and right. A little common sense if you will.
So suddenly a new 9 post having troll comes on with derogatory screename toward myself, and post attacking me, yet it's cool?
Do go into detail how you as a mod think this is ok!

Scott,
So you want a rule that states

"Using a screen name that a current Member does not like (for whatever reason), it must be deleted or changed"

No but I think this screename is a bit different Jeff. Don't you think? Apparently you just find it amusing so you let it ride. Gotcha
Oh and here's a new member that cannot PM or post for sale ads, just like any other new member here. Funny that the troll posted on same thread

I remember the good ol days! Everyone (well most) wore a set of leathers and didn't mind a little road rash and it was fun!! No Political Correctness required, etc. Nowdays everyone is so afraid of their little feelers getting hurt, they turned in their leathers for leotards, panties and a UNIsex bathroom ?!?!?!?

Ladies, we need to dawn our leathers again and move on!
