Add this to the wish list: would it be possible to have, in our profile, an option to filter out any and all posts by a wiener? So I won't have to personally slog through fifteen content-free posts a day by the same jackass? Let technology handle the problem when Manifestos and lots of hints don't seem to make a dent?

Great board, Zims rule, &tc &tc.

It's a good idea (and Delphi offers it) but it involves A LOT of overhead vis a vis the database...well at least I think it does. I need to run it by our DBA. ;-)

Having said that, I think it's at least *possible* to put together some code to do it - so I'll add it to the long-term side of the project list.

That is the greatest idea I have heard in a LONG time.

Hmmmmmmmmm... I can think of an easy way to do this to block (1) user.


I could probably learn how to store an array in a text blob, then pass that into the SQL. I don't know how to do this off hand but how hard could it be?

whodatzone.com (nfl/saints forum) tried this and got a overload of people usng different screen names or another way to put it one person using many screen names. However AOL does not seem to mind this situation.

Just a Warning!

It's a feature I've been waiting for for quite sometime. I wouldn't use it all that often, maybe not at all if you guys...well you get the idea.

Well, if you can manage to set up the block/ignore type thing, it should also be pretty easy to set up a one account per IP and/or e-mail thing to avoid a bunch of clones.

IP blocks are only truly effective against Cable / DSL users. Dialup users change IPs too often.

One per-email... eh. We don't verify via e-mail at this time. That is something to think about, but it seems like it would be a bit of a pain to work into the system.

It's probably only something you'd need to do if the situation called for it.
Someone making a bunch of different names and talking to themself, for example, would be a good time to say, "OK, let's not let this happen again..."

As for IP bans on dial-up, a lot of ISPs own a class C IP that stays static for every user. Only the last number changes between log-ons. If the system will recognize asteriks as wildcards, just replace the last number with an asterik. Only downside being that it bans everyone on that ISP.
Probably also a case that wouldn't be implemented unless the situation absolutely called for it.
