Excessive bad posting? WTF?
Due to excessive bad posting from this IP or Subnet, comment posting has temporarily been disabled. If it's you, consider this a chance to sit in the timeout corner . If it's someone else, this is a chance to hunt them down. If you think this is unfair, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your MD5'd IPID and SubnetID, which are "bf5a689ed4a826b0f51419ebdec36515" and "6fa9d0d8e6e3b35ea10dc00def814d85" and (optionally, but preferably) your IP number "[IP deleted - Q]" and your username "Quattro Vezina".
Eh? What excessive bad posting? Was it the funny comment I posted the other day that got quite a bit of moderation for both Funny and Overrated? The Funny mods won out, btw, and its score is currently 3, after bouncing between 1 and 5 for a while. If so, that's one seriously screwed up autobanning system.
I've fired off an email to email@example.com, asking what's going on, and I've yet to see a reply. It should be interesting to see what they say when/if they do send a reply...
Edited on 17 August 2004, 4:45am CDT: Well, still banned. No response to my email. And I just got mod points earlier. This system is definitely broken.
Btw, HGT, it was actually your journal entry that prompted me to write this. I'm mentioning this here, as I'm still banned and thus can't reply.
Edited on 24 August 2004, 3:18pm CDT: Just a little update. Still banned, still no response, I'm still pissed off.
Edited on 2 September 2004, 4:24pm CDT: Still banned, still no response. But I have mod points again.
Final edit on 8 September 2004, 8:01pm CDT: The IP ban seems to have worn off. W00t!
