    antichrist was very explicitly warned both last year and in May this year not to post any discussion of religion or related matters outside the Religion and Science section without moderator approval in view of his track record of threadjacking arguments about religion onto other threads. It was made very clear he would be banned for two months if he continued doing it.

    As he has breached this warning repeatedly he has been banned for two months, although I will consider reducing this ban to one month if he behaves himself in his postings elsewhere during this time.

    antichrist is also placed on zero tolerance for his pet habit of dragging posts from one forum to another in either direction to troll and to start fights. A two-month ban will be applied if this behaviour continues or recurs.

    I have deleted a thread about forum upgrades started by someone who claimed to be a long-time member posting as a hydra but was in fact posting using a proxy IP.

    This, plus the nature of the post as a potential advert of sorts for the frequent and mostly useless functional knob-twiddles in the other place, and for the other place's functionally inferior PGN viewer, causes me to suspect that the poster was really a banned member engaging in trolling and advertising for the other place.

    As noted in the forum rules we reserve the right to ban any suspicious account that uses a proxy IP.

    If the author was really a long-term unbanned member here they would know that we do not target people who raise a reasonable opinion in a reasonable manner.

    I may resurrect some of the posts by unbanned members from that thread soon.

    I don't usually comment on the spammers we ban nor on the multitude of hydras that have been signed up (one particularly sad and lonely individual has signed up several hundred hydras which have had to be banned or deleted).

    However, I will note that we had the permanently banned user Arrogant-One sign up a hydra today (also not his first breach of his ban) which he used to post and make comments in the shout box. The new account has been banned and all posts removed. This is standard operational procedure and I don't expect to make further comment in the future on the handling of spammers or hydras of permanently banned users.

    antichrist's current ban has been extended by a bit over a week for making false comments about moderation (alleging he has been subjected to unlogged bannings many times) over there.

    As antichrist has exceeded his quota for whinging about moderation for this week (and continues to make too many off-topic and unsuitable posts) he has been placed in it. For the next week, if I have configured it correctly, posts by antichrist will only appear on the board after the moderators have cleared them. If this needs to be applied in the future I won't bother logging it.

    A reminder to various posters to be a bit careful of their tone when replying to new posters who appear to be genuine and who are not saying anything that is obviously aggro or stupid.

    While we do quite often get new posters (hydras or spammers) who are not quite what they seem, when dealing with a new member who you think just may be of this kind, they should be given the benefit of the doubt until the facts become clearer.

    Responses to apparently genuine new users that are rude, needlessly suspicious, oddball or posted by antichrist may be deleted.

    User Judge Bishop has been banned as a hydra of a current user that was clearly signed up just to troll another user.

    Rinse and repeat. Persistent trolling of another poster who antichrist has been repeatedly warned not to troll also contributed to this latest ban.

    I don't think antichrist's behaviour elsewhere has been all that good in the past month so he should consider himself lucky to get away with the following: AC will shortly be unbanned from most of the board, but will remain banned from the Help and Feedback section for the full two-month period (longer if he complains). Further idiotic posting behaviour in that section when he returns to it may lead to indefinite or permanent exclusion from that section. While excluded from it he is not permitted to post comments about moderation outside his Off-Topic Bin thread.

    As an alternative to full-site two-month minimum bans, antichrist may now in some cases just be blocked from particular parts of the forum. If any further part-site blocking of AC is imposed I intend to just log it by editing this post.

    [EDIT 10-3. Excluded from Arbiters Corner for three months for posting stupid analogies about moderation in there.]

    [EDIT 12-6. Excluded from Current Tournaments for a week for blatant threadjacking.]

    [EDIT 30-7. Excluded from Arbiters Corner for a week for bumping threads older than he had permission to bump.]

    The entire "player behaviour at MCC" split-thread has been moved offline for now for legal reasons which in turn trigger a consideration of fairness.

    Various posters are reminded:

    1. If making negative comments that may affect someone's reputation it is your responsibility to not only get all facts straight but to provide evidence that your account is correct.

    2. If making negative comments that may affect a club's reputation (and by proxy that of those running the club) you have the same responsibility, and don't be too surprised if this results in negative comments about you in return.

    3. Posters who believe that material about them on this forum defames them should first PM a moderator asking that the material be removed. No legal threats should be made against the site or other posters in the process, and a reference to intention to seek legal advice is considered to be a threat. (Note: no explicit legal threat was made against anyone specific in this case to my knowledge.)

    I believe it should be noted for the record (in the interests of right of reply) that Erik T described a post on the thread criticising him as follows:

    "the story [..], though true in some aspects, has been distorted and grossly exaggerated. He may feel upset about the incident, but dragging someone's name through the mud with misleading quarter-truths is not on."

    antichrist shoutbox-banned for 24 days for trolling another user in the shoutbox having been persistently warned not to do so, and on top of other trolling behaviour in creating work for the mods by bumping a large number of old threads with mostly inane comments.

    antichrist was clearly aware he was likely to be suspended for his shouts and said "now bar me 24 hours if you like". I decided I liked 24 days much much more.

    If I have to ban him from the shoutbox for trolling that particular poster again then next time it will be 24 weeks.
