I would support this if it happened for like a week or so.

Yeah, that's the idea. I wouldn't want this site to be privatized from the public for any length of time, ideally. This is just a measure we need to take.

If the account registration was disabled for a week or if "joker" accounts continued showing up for a week?

What?


emery - go to this post

What?

I think he's asking if you want the accounts that Longo (the OP) talked about to keep showing up for another week… I guess?

I'm asking if emery wants to stop new user registration for one week or if she suggests waiting one week to see if this trend of "joker" accounts continues.

If that's the case, then of course not. I'd prefer more actual people discover this site. I'm always a proponent of high-quality discussion. One person talking back and forth doesn't emulate that.

I'm willing to try cancelling user registration for one week to see if that improves things around here.

Ok. Hopefully things improve.

@admin – you should temporarily disable account registration so you can wean off all these fake accounts.

Once somebody makes a fake Brian Krebs account, I think they've gone too far.

I'm actually in support of this idea for the time being. It was funny when there were a couple of fake accounts mixed in with real users joining, but if you look at the flow of new users signing up, it's a constant stream of joker after joker.

It would be unprecedented but I think it's the only course of action available to us.

I've taken this into consideration and you'll now notice that you can no longer create a new account on this forum… for one week. We'll see how it goes.


Yikes I've caused some controversy, kek. Maybe it'll go good, hopefully it does.

Now hopefully you'll be removed from moderator. Look at the damage you've done to this forum.

Esoteric.


Purely chaotic. Multiple accounts by one user manipulating the consensus on the forum. Advocating against himself to gain favor with others while he's still pulling the strings on the other end.

And the best part is that you don't know the full extent!
