It should be perma ban in my book.
Yes. Again, I see no evidence.

Yes, as in it is a perma ban for side stepping a temp ban?

My question is unrelated to the political forum.

Wouldn't the same IP address give it away?

Yes but its easy to get around that. It takes very little skill or knowledge to mask your IP through a proxy. I just tested my anonymous browser and it connected just fine.

Maybe we should ask Putin and his boys to look into this.

Maybe you shouldn't try to be a comedian. I am not sure you are not one of the people Flags and GM are talking about.

Being a mod is a tough job especially since it is strictly a volunteer position with no compensation. The list of Super Mods is quite long but the reality is only a few have actually done mod work in the last year and even more haven't even logged in. Admin needs to weed out the inactive mods and then get interested members who have some leadership qualities to volunteer to help out. Without a good Mod group the site will continue to plummet in the eyes of the good members who keep it going. If you don't like how it is run do something about it.

Points well made. But in fairness, the OP mentioned a specific member who had previously been permabanned 100 times now posting again under an alias. The OP didn't say the language of the post was a violation-he said the member signing up and posting under the 101st name or whatever alias was the violation. I can see why flags might get a little miffed. He's pointed out what is a violation of the rules at least 3 times and has been told by admin and a mod that it's not a rules violation. Based on flags post and the responses by Ibobi and JW, it looks like they didn't read through his post or didn't understand it.

On a separate issue, if it's okay for somebody who is permabanned to come back under an alias or new name, then why have rules or permaban anybody. That would make this a free for all in the forums but maybe that's what HuntingNet is going for? I'm not trying to create a stink or problem but I can see why flags is getting a bit exasperated.

I could be wrong but from some of the previous posts about the guy by calhunter, I believe the guy used the same IP address a lot. Maybe not always (there are other ways to determine if its the same person) but enough to get noticed. IIRC, I think flags also pointed out some idiosyncrasies that the guy uses that also make it easy to identify him.
