Title says it all. What's his deal?

Just another sad and pathetic person who hides behind the internet.

Report, ignore, move on. I'm a bit surprised he hasn't been IP Range Banned at this point.

I think it's that maniac who posted about how lessons are a waste of time. He went off the rails to say the least.

He’s a software guy by vocation and knows all the tricks, like changing ip addresses. I don’t know what Eric might be doing. We’ll continue to hide and lock.

Not much that can be done. Ip blocking may have worked in the days of big desktop computers but not when we use a whole bunch of portable devices. The only effective methods involve connecting an account to a valid bank card and an active google/facebook/etc. account. We'd have far fewer trolls but at the cost of far fewer members.

With a VPN (Virtual Private Network) you can have a different IP address from almost anywhere whenever you want. It’s great for protecting your information if you log into public networks but can help malicious jerks like this one do things like this.

I noticed a loss of BHO access not long after some recent trolling events by this guy.

Has he been able to interrupt service  as well?

The mods can do no wrong rule-- can bring this on. However it is likely the only way for Eric to keep our long running great mods around. I finally figured out that even though they were not perfect (from my view) in their remedies at times--very few others were capable and willing to replace them ----so I just let their few wrong blows bounce off and time erased the whole thing in a day or 2. Merry Christmas to the mean old human mods.

The troll needs to look and see what he sees in his own full length mirror ,a pot calling a kettle black.We are all just an organic mess ,big deal

I'm no psychiatrist, but, fwiw,  I think it would help if the mods continued with their "hide and lock," but WITHOUT the added benefit (???) of people discussing the situation.   So, you might ask, why am I posting this?     [If I answered that I'd get accused of being a guy that talks to himself... and that would never do. wink ]

Tractor1 - Posted - 12/21/2021:  06:19:26


you are going to have to put words with your question marks Eddie for his dummy to comprehend

i actually think tom would make a great mod ,,, i ain't kidding...
you never have to guess what he is thinking and seems to be
a nip it in the bud kinda guy !!!!!

I agree with Owen. The less attention this troll gets the better.



It’s particularly unpleasant and abusive when idiotic trolling is directed at an individual. But surely no balanced person does this regardless of ‘motive’? The posts I’ve seen are so purile and immature the troll is really only revealing himself as in urgent need of professional help.



That's all I'm going to add about this recent trolling.

If this immature guy thinks he's upsetting me, he's not. I consider the source and just just ignore him ... as should the rest of the members.

I do appreciate all the comments I've received from members about this person. Perhaps he'll grow up, mature and go away.

Mike, we're gonna have to mark this day down on the calendar, 



I agree with you

If the identity of this individual is known, and verifiable, and presumably a previous member, why not add his name and photo to his new avatar when he makes one of his posts. (tongue in cheek)
It’d be cool as hell but would probably go to lawsuit next day

I’m quite certain this depraved individual is not going to grow up or get professional help or voluntarily stop.

He sounds like a real sicko who can barely string his own words together. He won't be hard to recognize if he appears again tomorrow as Mary Poppins.

I removed my comment. In dealing with a person this sick the joke may have caused more problems than it incurred laughter.

What about blocking based on MAC address? It's much harder to change devices than it is to change IP's.

I'm not sure how that works, but I know when I'm at Paneras they limit free WiFi to 10 minutes to keep people from camping out all day. When their gateway pops up telling me I've used my 10 minutes, I can log off, check the "spoof my MAC address" checkbox on my VPN client, then log back on to Paneras WiFi for another 10 minutes. I can repeat that over and over to bypass their MAC address based time limitations.



Maybe she could report this dude to LE for cyber stalking.

You can only use the emojis offered via the rich text smiley button, all others (via your phone keyboard) turn into the string of question marks.

Originating MAC I don't believe is sent.  And, there either is likely to be, or could be made to be, an intervening network device (firewall, proxy, etc.) that could or would either strip it or the server would end up seeing the MAC of that device, not the originator's.



Even Phones these days randomize it anyway, and it would be trivial to spoof it to anything you want.
