Ok, so there were a couple spammers today that I terminated and the resulting title under their name was "Posting Elsewhere". I'm perfectly fine with this moniker. It has a more dignified tone with maybe a touch of humor. Was there anything else behind the decision to rename? I hadn't heard anything about it.
Sorry Jim, didn't see this until you pointed it out.
It's the Monkey's humor.
I think he'd intended it for the rare individuals who have been "asked" to "post elsewhere", but that ban category is now alphabetically first, so it pops up as the default for any ban. you can change to "Banned users" instead of "Banned TOS" to get the familiar "banned" title.
Which brings up the IP way of tracking. Since Konrad and others like him might be tempted to try again under another name. As I understand it, though his name changes his IP will remain the same. If this is so than that seems helpful but even so, will this mean maintaining a hit list of IP addresses of offenders? Do we have that already?
