You don't know the problems they had with IP ban and why they chose to stop using it in all but the extreme cases. I do agree that better tools are needed. However, giving mods IP ban is one that I do not think Preetha will ever look at.
She's offline, and this question will probably be closed before she sees this.. Besides, hammering the CEO of OpenStudy with your suggestions is a highly ineffective way of gaining her attention..
Ok well I am just sick and tired of all the inappropriate things that are said on here I want a place were I can learn and have fun but keep it clean
I agree with that comment. There are problems. They need to be addressed. The present tools are not working as intended. However, suggesting that Preetha do something she has said she will not do is not effective. That is where other tools are needed.
The chat is not the only problem, so that is an illogical comment.
yup i go wid @e.mccormick even if not a mod or abassodor
Ok well maybe not IP ban but an IP suspicion
@e.mccormick is a mod....
yup Army ranger this is not the army
Yeah IP bans is a touchy subject, it should only be requested in particular cases, right @e.mccormick :P
I never said it was all I am doing is making a statement trying to make this place better
AR, I completely understand your source of frustration. If you look at the comments blues recently made as she gave up on being a mod (for now at least), you can see how frustrating it is for mods too. It is kind of like a freeway that has lots of reckless drivers that cause accidents, but all the highway patrol is allowed to do is pull them over and tell them not to do it again. Some listen, but a few just laugh and intentionally drive into another car right in front of the officer, laughing the whole time and hurting everyone else. Effective tools are needed. 100% agree.
Block new accounts made under the same IP for 24 hours. Block all proxies.
Until anything happens, i would suggest users to IGNORE any spammer, and IGNORE any inappropriate comments, and IGNORE and IGNORE and IGNORE them. They are going to do as they wish, can you do anything about it ?? NO, right ? then why get bother? just IGNORE them. They crave for attention, lets take that away from them. Assume they were never there.
AKA: Don't feed the trolls.
