Haha, with all the crappy, uneducated posts around here, Roy's are about the only ones that consistently make sense...if you ban someone, can't they just create another user name? seems to bad, reminds me of another celtics blog website I used to go to a couple of years back (before here). Get rid of this clown.No, there are bans and then there are bans. The ones I tend to employ don't even allow for frontpage access and come complete with personal background information and residential satellite photographs.
Is that a joke? Residential satellite photographs? I'm starting to feel a little exposed. Are you watching me right now Bob Day?
Not at all, Pat. I never use such tactics except to protect CelticsBlog or members of this community and only then in special situations that might potentially pose harm to someone or ones. These are things you never want to have to do and I abide by a very strict set of codes and rules with regard to such matters. Rights to privacy are extremely important and we respect those greatly around here.
Since I've been involved with CelticsBlog there has only been two instances were I had to uncover personal information on people in order to get to the bottom of some issues. As those resolved, neither one of those situations turned out to be particularly threatening and were thus dropped from further pursuit and forgotten about.
This situation doesn't look dangerous either but then again, FDR is having one of his "moments" so I have to pay attention to that. I'm usually sort of a last resort around here with things like this. I don't normally get involved with admin and moderator issues.
When someone attacks a staff member like what we saw here though, it is our policy to take that staff out of the loop of the problem and try to resolve the issue between the rest of us. Today though, I simply happened to be the only other staff person around when this went down. Others will be around soon and I don't think they are going to be at all happy with what they see. So I imagine this little incident will be concluded pretty soon.
