I received too many emails for the thread titled "Banned Participants Question". The sender's name looked like, MonteCristo (followed by some numbers)?.
Had this occured to anyone???.
Yes, it would have happened to anyone that was subscribed to the thread.
The offender is a person that is banned time and again and logs right back in with a new identity. Just ignore and delete the messages. That's what I do.
Wonder if adobe has considered banning his IP address as opposed to his email address.
And if his ISP compalined becuae other share the same address. That way his ISP could deal with him.
Yes everybody and his brother, sister, father, mother, aunt, uncle, Grandmother, Grandfather,Great Grandmother, Great Gandfather, cousin, nieces and nephews.
They would be more effective to bann his ISP or Server. And pass the owrd on to ther companies about his actions. That way effectively he would have no internet access.
Phillip, I'm sure that if it was so easy
, they would have done it long ago. However, this a good example of how pointless it is banning people for ever. You may have noticed that Ramón, Buko, Kath, ... , have not come back at all, and I'm sure they wouldn't even dream about doing so. They may be as outspoken as you like, but they are correct people. And we have most probably lost all of them for ever.

Sign-up blocking by IP address is part of every forum software. This is the easiest way to prevent hundreds of repeat posts by the same Chinese spammers peddling pirated and/or useless video conversion software. It is also the tool that would stop trolls like our friend "turdie" (or whatever its name is).
Normally such a block can only be set by forum admins, not moderators. But it appears that they are very reluctant to use it; it seems that banning real people is more important than blocking spammers and trolls.

Except nobody signs up for these forums. They sign up for an Adobe account and then happen to get forum access too. The lack of proper controls when signing up for an Adobe account has been poined out by several moderators and even other groups within Adobe who suffer from the same problem (documentation teams, community help, cookbooks), but I wouldn't hold your breath.
