Just a side note on IP bans. They are at best an inconvienience to the benned, and are a headache for anyone else who happens to be using the same provider. Granted, it's rare to have two people who don't know each other on the same provider, but this brings up issues with others in the same house that may participate on a site.

As far as the Good Wench ban, well.... I'm still not convinved the writer also wrote WiKi... []

Nicely done WGW, nicely done.

So SnowDog, shall we call the good wench one of yours? I seem to recall being accused of being one of your socks a long time ago. [] []

WGW did this happen to affect threads? I notice in my "view recent posts", there's a huge gap between April and now, and I know I had a couple of posts in between them.

Shall one alone contest with us forever? Well, if someone does find the literary forums, happens to know a bit about Tolkien doesn't like the movies and makes a silly post in the Prancing Pony, does that make that person automatically Wiki? And if it does and if after been banned so many times that person just comes back under a different persona than what's the point in banning the person? We might just as well live with him or her! Or perhaps if a few more people posted up north that person might be ignored or bypassed! []

Not at all. But there are certain giveaways; posting total non sequiturs into literary threads and getting angry when people point this out is one of them. []

I find that whoever says that, doesn't have much of it. I leave sites where people gossip and troll about others behind their backs, rather than PM'ing straight to them when they have a problem.

Indeed.

This, however, is not the right way to go about it.

[] No problem here. Not even any gossip here. I was just doing a bit of late-night beer-infused speculating. Thought my post would get a rise out of the Wiki/Sarah haters, not you. Didn't think I poked you that hard with the stick. []

Indeed it was. Yet now I have to wonder if I hit the nail on the head. []
Seriously, no hard feeling mate. Cheers. []

EDIT: Just took a look at TORC, my old Tolkien stomping grounds from 2000 - 2003 & came across a character that I think is our wiki. Was amusing reading how he is irritating folk in a veterans day thread. Fir-Bolg has a similar pattern. Amusing. Anyway, wasn't anything biggie for here so didn't post anew and raise this thread. []

Behavioural patterns and similarities in (mis-)spelling tend to be more conspicuous and revealing than most people realize.

He's not the first, and with everyone it is always a matter of degree, anyway. Doesn't it make it easier to put up with since (s)he isn't the first?
Take it with a grain of salt. Or a block of it. []

It's not bad now. Strange views aside, insults and ad hominem attacks have not been a problem (comparing to prior incarnations).

Not yet, though.

But I think I’m detecting a certain tendency to be impervious to arguments and to not accepting the viewpoint nor the standing in discussion of those who do not agree with his or her pronouncements, even when unwilling to shore them up with good sources.
