Since I've changed a bunch of the ways things are done around here, I'm going to further change the way we deal with banned users who repeatedly attempt to come back here and troll. I think it's better to air the dirty laundry than to keep it hidden away like we have been.

Specifically, please report to me immediately if you notice that the users who used to be known as Barb or X-Black come back. Most recently, the BTH account was created and seems to have been used by both Barb and X-Black (or some odd combination of the two) to troll here. Here are just two of the many IP addresses that they posted from most frequently:

host81-157-151-176.range81-157.btcentralplus.com (81.157.151.176) [ 131 Posts ]
cm40-233.madisontelco.com (76.77.233.40) [ 100 Posts ]

Note that one is from the Madison Telephone Company in Illinois and the other is from British Telecom. One user on two different continents, sometimes posting within minutes of each other. Some other interesting finds in the IP address info associated with the BTH account:

pool-72-73-200-182.cmdnnj.fios.verizon.net (72.73.200.182) [ 31 Posts ]
ppp-70-245-186-53.dsl.spfdmo.swbell.net (70.245.186.53) [ 20 Posts ]
pool-71-251-131-126.cmdnnj.east.verizon.net (71.251.131.126) [ 17 Posts ]
32.176.101.1 (32.176.101.1) [ 16 Posts ] (from Lake Mary, FL)
75-105-128-38.cust.wildblue.net (75.105.128.38) [ 14 Posts ] (from Colorado)
mobile-166-217-179-056.mycingular.net (166.217.179.56) [ 5 Posts ]
cpat002.wlan.net.ed.ac.uk (129.215.5.254) [ 3 Posts ]
ppp85-141-189-165.pppoe.mtu-net.ru (85.141.189.165) [ 1 Post ] (Russia? Really??)

All of the above-listed IP addresses (plus a bunch more) were used to post to the BTH account.

Here are the top few IP addresses from the Matsui account:

host81-157-151-176.range81-157.btcentralplus.com (81.157.151.176) [ 131 Posts ]
cm40-233.madisontelco.com (76.77.233.40) [ 100 Posts ]
32.176.26.204 (32.176.26.204) [ 39 Posts ]

No surprise that the Matsui account has many of the exact same IP addresses. Obviously, both accounts are the same person/people.

I think this is the first time I've ever posted the IP addresses of users here, but I am doing this so there is a public record of where these trolls are coming from and so there is a record of their activities. I hope we can all work together to nip their future trolling expeditions here in the bud.

Please notify me (either here in this thread or via PM) if you notice the same person/people coming back again.

Thanks,

-josh

Those two sure seem to have gone to a lot of work for a few kicks.

Thanx, Josh.

Not the first time Josh but I suspect this banning is linked to a previous one which you undertook a few years ago, complete with many listed IPs..

I apologize to everyone for not being available to take action on this sooner, clearly PhantomUK has crossed the line (and then some) by repeatedly and personally attacking users here and for posting pornographic images. He is now banned.

For anyone interested, I have notified his ISP, British Telecom (host86-133-228-104.range86-133.btcentralplus.com). Paul (aka Phantomuk) is no longer welcome here.

Here are the IP addresses he posts from:
