I was looking at the forum and it appears that out of the apx. dozen and a half threads our Norwich troll had popped up over the past four hours - most of the threads having been created by him in the past...

There are now only seven left !

Did someone go on a complaint spree of maybe the admins are just removing our troll's threads e.g. by IP address ?

It appears so! The ridiculousness has gotten out of hand. I will admit I got sucked in. I always do. I can't help myself, I love a good argument and he/she makes it so easy.

Yay for the mods!:)

Michael, you said in the one thread that you filed one complaint, I also filed one complaint but it was a while ago. Back when she was posting about how she was going to sue the old man and then trying to promote her new venture of taking advantage of the elderly. I basically said in my complaint that I did not feel the thread should be allowed as she has admitted that her stories are false and I didn't want any elderly people to be taken advantage of by her due to their not knowing how she is.

If I had to guess I would say your other suspicion is right & the OWS folks contacted topix because that thread is completely gone.

And it's not just the posts labled Kerri G. being removed I've noticed, they are also removing other posts by her under her various names.

Again, I am glad it's finally happening. Maybe she'll learn a lesson.

I've never understood the entire Friday the 13th thing... I mean if people want to consider the number 13 to be unlucky then ok... but then we're talking about Friday... which is the end of the work week for a lot of folks... and that's a good thing...

So shouldn't the two balance out ?!

Now having said that don't even get me started about when it's Monday the 13th !!!

It was one complaint yesterday...

I have probably sent in a half dozen of them about our Norwich troll's posts over the past year... a couple in regard to it's "castration" threads and the rest concerning the various scams / misrepresentations we saw on the site...

If I were to guess then it looks like they went through and removed the thread(s) where they claimed to represent OWS... then a bunch of others probably by the IP address they had when they originally posted...

I'm guessing that because that because despite the massive removal... there are still posts by them in past months... some fairly recently i.e. February... at least they're still showing up on my screen for now...

We'll just have to wait and see if they come back... and if they do - if they come back as a sane and productive user of the forum... but I'm not holding my breath in regard to the latter...

Well that only lasted about an hour or so...

It looks like while the admins removed all those threads and comments from our Norwich troll... they didn't ban him... as he is already back posting on the site...

At least for now...

It's over here posted as "Castrati" from Norwich:

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/binghamton-ny...

Now I am kind of wondering if the admins are watching this part of the site maybe blocking IP addresses as he pops on... because it's only a single post then silence instead of the usual routine of spamming a whole bunch of threads / comments at once...

Interesting. I hope the troll doesn't have the programming skills to override.

I was just glancing through the old threads because they seemed a bit out of order... and it seems like the admins are STILL doing cleaning of this section... with more of our Norwich troll's posts removed...

I wonder how much longer they're going to work on it until they decide they've done enough ?

I'm starting to wonder if maybe the admins have blocked more than our "Kerri" troll's access to the site...

If you don't know what I'm talking about...

We had our other troll that was coming on using an IP address showing as being from Hallstead, PA... using a different name almost every time... admitting he was posting the same nonsense not just here but on numerous other sites...

I was curious and he is still spamming other places with the type of posts he is known for... but no repeats of them here - at least not since around the same time our "Kerri" troll was seemingly blocked...

It might just be coincidence... but if so - it certainly is a curious one...

Well, despite the troll not posting anymore someone certainly is spending an awful lot of time judging the posts.

And it doesn't take long for them to judge. Must be bedridden and lonely.

Yeah...

They must lurk here pretty much non-stop because every time I have been online and looked - they seem to "judge" the posts within about an hour... even yours up there Jake... it's only been an hour since you posted and already they've done the strange "racy" routine...

The flip side is that the person or persons that had been giving agree / interesting / similar positive judgements in response to our troll's spam... seems to have mostly gone missing... at least over the past couple of weeks...?

That is to say...

The person that was marking OUR responses to the troll with positive marks seems to have gone missing...
