    The poll in the previous Should we ban Gary Green? has been closed.


    I guess Green forgot his promise

    I voted "Yes", but he can just pop back up under different names.


    And come to think of it, by kicking him off he will have even more incentive to screw around here.

    How about just banning trolls as they come?

    That's so harsh.... I like to use the term "Dumb-ass Lightning Rod"

    Has anyone ever done a profile on Green? I mean he could be a handicaped kid.... and we should welcome and admire his efforts.

    If he's a 45 year old traffic court lawyer in Los Angeles, well then I refer back to my colorful term above.

    That's what's been done before - effectively and "quietly." For instance, less than 1% of F-Chatters saw a certain poster @ 1 month ago who was posting rubbish under a couple of nics. As MarkPDX and Rob Lay can attest, said user(s) got banned within hours.

    That said, what works in other sites I either participate in or moderate is simply to "ban trolls as they come (back)."

    I was making a joke. Sorry my :) thingy didn't work.


    I just can't understand.....is Green a young kid that wants to learn about the cars.... or is he older punk that just wants to screw around?

    I don't care. He's on my ignore list (and is the only person on my ignore list I might add) and that works well enough for me.

    Ban him - he adds no value and lies - wastes space here. He claimed many times that he has changed but does not. Claims he wont start a thread, then does. He makes racist remarks, derogatory remarks, provokes people for no apparent reason..

    well ban his IP not just the username, that will stop him from coming back.

    That is if it is worth banning him. seems like half his posts were 'under the influence' vapid and self-serving. but i don't have anything personal against him.

    I'm still perplexed by his "diction." I think he's gotta be typing with, either, his nose or tounge, as the straight jacket usually lacks dexterity...

    I like the idea of a whipping boy, but it gets old after a while.

    If you're seeing his posts still, then you didn't ban him right. I think it still puts his name in there, but you don't see the post.

    You can't ban IP addresses.
