    Deleted four posts of Baron/jammo spelling stuff from a chess thread. Will also be deleting posts that invite people to continue spelling-related injokes on chess threads whenever I feel like it without warning or necessarily logging the deletions.

    If posters want to engage in silly spelling-related comments all the time then start a new thread in the non-chess section and copy posts you want to make fun of there. No problem with one-post spelling corrections but less silly banter on chess threads please. Ta.

    User zarkoth banned and post and replies removed. zarkoth engaged in what is known to me as "street team" spamming in which the poster pretends to have found the product they are advertising and to be a genuine poster asking for advice about it.

    For the time being I've deleted an extreme and in my view insensitive post from the Muhammad Ali thread and replies to it. I was thinking of at least splitting it when another moderator suggested it should probably be moderated.

    We are of course happy for there to be general discussion for or against boxing on the site at any time but stomping on the grave of a person loved by many - in large part for reasons other than boxing - in the process of making a general point is only likely to derail a thread and cause annoyance.

    Merkury banned for unsolicited commercial posting. It was fun while it lasted.

    I emailed the account Rahane_S because I believe that account may be being operated by a banned user. No response in five days so account suspended at least until there is an adequate response. If no response within a week I intend to permanently ban the account.

    [Updates: 1 - Rahane_S permanently banned
    2 -Users Mordechai and normanghaskell have been proven to be hydras of Rahane_S and also banned. I am treating all three as clearly hydras of banned user Axiom.]

    I've just merged the ridiculous number of Graeme Anthony set threads on this site, and made it a sticky in General Chess.

    Members are reminded they are not permitted to quote postings of banned posters without any critical comment as per the following.

    * While a poster is banned from chesschat it is not permitted to post on their behalf in any way, or to post links to anything they have written while banned. Quoting of banned posters is permitted only if (i) the material quoted was written before the poster's current ban commenced (onus is on the quoter to demonstrate this) or (ii) the quoting is clearly for the purposes of critical discussion (not necessarily negative) rather than deliberately helping the banned poster to circumvent their ban by having their comments appear here.

    Any post consisting largely of quoting of material by one or more banned posters with little or no original comment added will breach this rule, as will any post that quotes a banned user without discussing the comments quoted in relation to points being discussed on the thread. In any case all material quoted must be clearly within the site rules. If in doubt about this rule, please check your intended post with a moderator before posting it.
    The following toolbox posters are on a permanent ban:

    Alex Tool-sie - Just2Good
    Trevor Stanning - Moz, Sobriquet and other hydras
    David Beaumont - Firegoat7
    ?????? - Axiom and his numerous hydras
    The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.
