He who shall not be named (Dennis The Menace)

This guy has been trolling us for some time - I’d say at least 20 members are down to him. funkyderek and others had good replies to him – his pictures are very surreal - lamb power and all, and because of the OP trollism they all got moved to the moderator’s forum. Please discuses this deranged poster here - not that he will ever read this topic – he will just rejoin - troll and get banned yet again.

What were the previous aliases of the troll if you don't mind me asking, also, have you banned his/her IP address?

He has a dynamic IP or is using internet cafes..... or both.

Yes that’s the guy – I think Ygern talked to PZ about him when he was in Cork. The routine is - his posts get moved - he gets a permanent ban by username, ip and email (with wild cards thrown in for good measure). Sometimes members of the forum respond to him and it’s a shame that posts people have spent time on get moved.

I’ve done up a list of names he’s been banned under.

Might have missed one or two aliases. I’m changing the topic title as it might attract him if he googles his name.

funkyderek linked to an interesting page if you want to read another perspective on this: http://breakingspells.net/?p=341

If there was any way of effectively banning him someone would have found it by now. He spams a great many sites & blogs almost always with a new username & new email each time. His IP changes every time so you can't ban that. The sheer amount of time this must take every week speaks volumes about his mental state.

He almost certainly needs therapy and medication and possibly supervision. Here's a short list of things that ought to make anyone realise that there is something not right with him.

* thinks his "message" is an effective tool to "fight" atheists and skeptics
* genuinely thinks his message is in fact damaging atheists and skeptics
* thinks that the best place to put his anti-atheist message is atheist and skeptic sites
* creates fake emails every week of his life so that he can create more user accounts using things like http://mailinator.com/ and http://www.mail.com/intl/ so that web sites can do nothing about him.
* will post the same message repeatedly in the same thread until his current username gets banned

Then you get to the content of the message and it gets worse:
* message gets written in CAPSLOCK with lots of exclamation marks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111111!one1
* threatens death to everyone who disagrees with him, usually several times
* death threats become extremely nasty and personal if he posts on a blog as he then has access to the blogger's contact email address.
* message contains numerous examples of gratuitous abuse against atheists and skeptics
* issues bizarre command that suggests a frightened and illogical writer: "atheists get out of my universe"
* links to content that makes you wonder if he actually understands what he reads ( often links to obvious atheist satire or content unrelated to atheism)
* makes up his own meaning when reality escapes him e.g. firmly believes that Einstein disproves atheism (yeah, not so much)
* has an obsession with Nostradamus, Depeche Mode and Christ and makes vague claims that they are the future but chooses to not make any actual claim
* his message is essentially one of hatred and fear: kill yourselves or go away, you're all going to die for even talking about god.
* oh, & his final parting shot a few days ago: "become Marxist Revolutionaries" (no, I don't get that one either)
* is unintentionally funny: "Goats on fire" & "Lamb Power" come to mind.

Sounds like your average theist to me. :lol:

To be fair there isn't a whole lot you can do in terms of moderating other than just clean up after him. Is there anything we can do Ygern? pm you, email you or something if he shows up or do we just leave it to you and mkao.

From what I've gathered he lives in Canada.

Thanks for the offer - not really, other than maybe a PM if you see a post that has gone unnoticed for more than a couple of hours.
Although we ban the usernames & email addresses, we can't block the IP without blocking most of Canada, which would not be fair to Canadians assuming they wanted to post here :)

He does live in Canada, & PZ Myers has notified the police about it as he has received some of the nastiest threats. It's unclear whether anything can be done about it though. I doubt he is considered high risk by the police considering that he is obviously mentally unstable.

In case anyone wants to read: PZ's blog where the threats became too many to ignore: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009 ... canada.php

Now it's beginning to ring a bell, I was listening to the Infidel Guy one night and the host announced a maniac with much the same description as above, I'm guessing it's the same nut job.

would we have many users using mail.com & mailinator? Can we just block those sites? I used mail.com before but now gmail.
Some email sites setups can be easily abused for this. I assume this would not happen with gmail.

If you don't want him to know of this thread why not put it in member's section, it's not really a public topic.

One thing we could do is have more topics within the members area, maybe limit # of posts by new members to 1 a day for the first few weeks?? Just an idea
