Got a problem user who just won't shut up and keeps spamming garbage comments on your Blogger blog?
If he's "following" your blog you can block him and be rid of him.
Bye Lucas, have a nice life. If you show up on another account maybe I'll do what everyone else does to rid their blog's of your presence and go with moderated comments.
Edit: Unlike he claims on his blog (no I'm not going to link it) this isn't about me banning him for not agreeing. It's about him acting like a child, always insisting his opinions are right and everyone who disagrees is stupid.
When someone repeatedly spams comments here calling me stupid, idiot, retarded and autistic because I don't agree with him he's going to wear out his welcome here quickly. That's all there is to it.
Since the annoying, obsessive little twit is incapable of taking a hint and fucking off, comment moderation is now on.ReplyDelete
All things considered these words aren't something that I have come to expect reading here. I mention this because I am sorry that whoever this is got so far under your skin. Moderate away. I would say I hope people will learn, but this is the internet, and to quote MIB: People are stupid....ReplyDelete
I went with Disqus because of all the anonymous comments that were annoying. I just had to contact them to make sure they didn't turn ads on after I reached a certain amount of traffic.ReplyDelete
A little OOT question - do you think trading in capital modules will die in hisec after the jump changes?ReplyDelete
I'm unsure about that. I don't really deal in capital modules myself. I mostly specialize in small, valuable, non-bulky items and capital modules are bulky.Delete
My guess is it will have some negative effect but they'll still be worth trading. In fact might be more worth trading if enough of the competition drops out.
This guy's an even bigger nutjob than I thought.ReplyDelete
Not only does he continue to spam me on a daily basis after being moderated out but he's started making comments about me on CCP's forums too. Since I never post there, he's not responding to anything I said there, it's just harassment.
Nice to see Lucas gone, should make reading your comments in future rather more pleasant without his trademark endless drivel. His ability to clutter up and derail a thread with dimwitted objections to anything and everything was remarkably tedious.ReplyDelete
I'm a little worried with moderated comments though that other comments he doesn't particularly like or agree with won't make it to the blog. The appeal before was that you could read everything that was said straight away making it very difficult to hide other peoples opinions. Now anything could be squelched before it even makes it to the blog.Delete
That's exactly why I was so reluctant to go with moderated comments in the first place. But in the end Lucas crossed the line, had to go and since we can't ban or block users in Blogger blogs, moderation is the only way to go.Delete
Moderation is fine, when there are clear rules governing it (no spam, no abuse, etc.). When it turns to the blog author unilaterally rejecting comments which he/she doesn't like - it turns bad. Just look at Gevlon's blog - he deletes posts which don't follow his narrative or ask inconvenient questions. There is no discussion there; only either praise or posts to which he has a pre-made argument (proving his point ofc).Delete
A friend of mine with a popular blog adopted a simple rule - everyone is entitled to make a fool of himself publicly; only hard abuse/spam should be deleted. And it seems to work. If someone starts to troll, he just gets ignored and goes away in shame. Civilized people can make valuable discussions, regardless of opinion. It's like an open forum - there's no trollfest and in the same time no insane hardcore moderation.
And that was my dilema, with Lucas it was abuse and spam. Plus he had no shame, the more I ignored him, the more he spammed the same crap and the more abusive his words got.Delete
I never moderated comments before now and with one exception the only comments I deleted were off-topic spambot type comments mostly involving RL get rich schemes and unrelated business ads.
The one exception was another guy spewing insults and repeating the same crap over and over. That guy was brighter though, after deleting his comments on a particular topic a few times he got the hint. He still posts here and I've never had a problem with him again.
I agree Gevlon takes moderation too far, to the point of censorship. I've had some of my comments deleted there for no good reason.Delete
Which is ironic since lucas seems to think me and Gevlon are buddies. In fact the way his rants are going lately (he still spews multiple insulting comments here daily) he seems to think we're the same person.
It may be because you supported Gevlon's latest crusade - as it can't be named as anything less for it's zealotry and lack of any objectivity - and given his extremely bad reputation for someone lunatic in real life, some of it laid upon you. In my opinion, associating with Gevlon in any way is a recipe for being marked in the Eve community in an unpleasant way. That would explain how you got the attention. Just a guess.Delete
I wouldn't say I supported his latest crusade. I threw a little ISK Mordus Angels way after he pointed them out but that's the only anti goon idea he ever came up with that was actually worthwhile.Delete
My dislike of goons has nothing to do with him or anything he said, goons earned that all by themselves with practically everything they do, say and stand for.
If I remember correctly, he mentioned you as a supporter on Eve forum (or maybe his blog). That might be how you were associated with this endeavor, hence with him.Delete
