Default Socrates

He started posting another member's name yesterday as a pseudo sig. He's continued today in every post he's made, after 3 very direct warnings.

I've suspended him for 24 hours.

I think everyone is aware of the run-up to this situation. Here are some of the most recent threads.

http://talkrational.org/showthread.php?t=49300
http://talkrational.org/showthread.php?t=49299

from the private feedback forum:

We can discuss here whether a 24 hour suspension is likely to convince him to stop posting the name, and if not, what will.

People are still posting his RDnet screen name as far as I know. madmardigan put the name in his sig (again, after being told to knock it off) and is currently in the signature-restricted user group. This is comparable. A pseudo-sig at the bottom of every post.

This is the second time Socrates has targeted someone who was not involved in the ongoing tit-for-tat shit in his threads.

I think we do need to look at the harassment issue re madmardigan and others who continually post his name to get a rise out of him. I'm working on documentation of that issue right now. Will start another thread when I have it pulled together.

that doesn't sound like the same thing. if people were posting the equivalent info about him as he's doing to Resi, who hadn't even joined in the Socrates personal info parade as far as I know, then we should be discussing them too.

but if he's been told to knock off posting info that really is personal then just go with the 24 hours and see he does with it after that. I suspect he won't stop but we'll see.

re madmardigan, he hasn't posted the name again since a post he made right after I removed the name from his sig, so there's nothing to document past the point where we last took action. yay!

true. the earlier sig issue was one of harassment. this is also a matter of harassment via a pseudo-sig.
