I think what I'll do is just set up a couple of suspension type-bans for different durations, and see how they work.

I admit only going to the user account, seeing a ban button, and thinking if I pressed it all was lost so to speak. Obv. must explore deeper.

That button should just take to you to the same page in ban admin, IIRC.

ETA; Yeah it does. Thought so. It puts you on that page, with some details filled in. You still have to confirm before anything happens.

No, he is not. He declared his protest finished and is presumably taking a break on his own terms.

Can we ban 'el jefe' every time one of his political prognostications fails?

I was hoping he'd been suspended, so I could drop some climate knowledge on him and then be like "oh look, hes not posting because there's nothing he can say to that"

Ugh, how many threads did he really spam up?  Most of the ones I looked at it was just a single empty quote so I didn't bother, but if he went back and did more damage later yeah, they should probably be cleaned up.

Did he come back and have another tanty while I was asleep?

Bili, it's one quote post and all those threads have dropped back. It would be a pain tracking them down. I don't see the harm in leaving them?

Oh I see what he's done: loads of pointless thread bumps.

So he's still sulking then.  :grin:

I think all the thread bumps are from the same time, before F X decided to take a break.

^^ I hope FX learned his lesson here.
There is more concern for cleaning up the threads than to what was troubling FX to cause his bumping conniption. What a community. Community apathy.

Did something in particular set F X off? Or did he just want to check if spamming held the same joy as being generally contrarian?

If some particular post drove F X to his acts of minor forum disruption, I need to know what it said. For my own amusement.

No idea. It's hard to pay attention to to FX's emotional life.

It's when his ranting thread about climate change (which was more rant than climate) was moved from Science to Alt-Science.  FX then ruptured (raptured?) and began spamming.

What was funny/interesting is that his spamming was so similar to his posting in the original thread in question.

TTP, are you REALLY white knighting FX here?
Say it isn't so.

I didn't recognize it as spamming until I'd opened about the fifth one.
