How well has that worked for the last 10+ years. The game player plays the game knowing there is nothing that will be done.
    Phil, I received ONE message on this subject and responded.

    It's a hard balance, I admin'd here in the early days and got MAJOR grief off a couple of 'users' for being too pro-active (My displayed join date is incorrect)
    I do agree though that the place is now far too lightly moderated and has been for some years which has lead to it's current situation (no I'm not volunteering I no longer have the time to spare)

    Blaming the moderators (and Iím not saying that you are Russ; itís a general observation) for the prevailence of an issue that is largely down to one particular cnut, does not seem particularly fair. Having done it before (here), itís a thankless game of whack-a-mole.

    Clive seems to have been left to single handedly attend the place and I certainly don't blame him Rick.
    Like you say, dealing with someone who is persistant is a thankless task.

    I agree; personally I think that the only way forward is that new members should be proposed by an existing member; it the new member subsequently turns out to be a known troll, theyíre both permanently removed. Brutal perhaps, but effective.

    "single handedly attend the place"

    ?

    I watch this place because at the mo there's not much else to do. I don't see anything much to bother about except the bleedin' obvious. Not the possibles, the bleedin' obvious.

    All this forum really needs is a bit of self discipline from the users. Yes I am preaching. And yes I admit to liking the whole thing.

    A fellow member of our newly set up syndicate just tried to join this forum and the recaptcha doesn't work? Has someone deliberately ambushed it?

    Is it a coincidence that you out a troll and the site gets buggered up?

    Danny.

    Iím pretty sure it is a coincidence; this particular troll does not have any crayons that are sharp enough.

    Danny.
    Actually the problem, which is mentioned in the ReCaptcha window, is that the site needs to upgrade to V2 as V1 is no longer working.
    I will notify the site owner.

    Thanks for flagging that up.
