I hesitated for a long time to post in this thread (don't feed the trolls).
Some two weeks ago I thought he had changed his ways:
asking a serious question in this section (on the worral-attack).
It seems that he was surprised by getting a serious answer, as he
didnt follow up his post.
But finally reading his new thread I must say that I second the idea of banning his IP altogether.
Enough is enough.

Aagaard, do you still think Play the Open Games as Black is riddled with errors? Most people voted no on the poll.


If you keep taxing Aagaard with impertinent questions like this, you're going to get banned again.

Vigorito's idea of banning his ip is not altogether a bad idea, it will force him to go to the library Tongue


Banning his IP is the only way to resolve this issue. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he does not intend to actually contribute anything and that he is only here to pollute this board. He is nothing but a troll. And I'm also sure he gets off reading posts like these.  Ban his IP, the sooner the better.


I don't think it is that easy. Most regular internet users do not have static IP's i.e dedicated IP's. Most persons have what is known as a dynamic IP. Everytime you restart your computer, your IP changes.


True, but it is still very easy to do, based on the subnet mask that the hardware uses. Then again, people can then use proxies to get past that level of banning.  Then there is another security level for that type of breach.  But then people can go to public areas and post from library computers.  For this there are several excellent analysing programs that detects users even across these gulfs. based on posting frequencies, tendenceis, and now even rhetoric choices.

How much $$$ you got for security?  hehe....

In the end what eventually works best is the fool gets tired of his foolery and goes elsewhere

  

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

Problem is that there should be no MNb's or Fluffy's either then. Tell me, how are you sure that I am who I claim I am? And are you interested? If you had not told us your real name I never would have guessed. In fact, only when you began to write books it became important to me.
So the next step will be: registration will only be granted after sending a copy of our passport to Tony.
In favour of Anon. I must say he immediately made clear what his new pseudonym was. He could have chosen an entirely different one, which is the reason I am not so fond of banning.
Frankly I think censoring is more effective. Alas Alumbrado seems to be even more liberal than me, so my hope that this thread will be deleted - the best course of action - is almost zero. Maybe Anon himself wants to prove his good will!?
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

perhaps there should be no such thing as "anonymous" posts. it's easy to be a piece of garbage on a board when no one knows who you are...

"The problem with this is, people never do ignore him entirely."

I believe I mentioned this problem in my post. I'm aware of it, but surely the community is close-knit enough enough Nez-pas?

Vigorito's idea of banning his ip is not altogether a bad idea, it will force him to go to the library Tongue

Aagaard, I'm not going after you again. You said Play the Open Games as Black was riddled with errors. You are a strong player and know a lot about chess books so I was thinking maybe this book is riddled with errors. I just wanted to see what other people's opinions were.

[quote]Doing nothing is surely not an option.

Actually, that's the very best option. Unfortunately it requires everyone to ignore him for several weeks, because it could take that long. [/quote]

The problem with this is, people never do ignore him entirely. Sure most people do, but there are always one or two who rise to the bait.


[quote]these people live for negative attention, so banning them (and criticizing him) just turns them on. [/quote]

He can be as turned on as he likes so far as I'm concerned, as long as he's out of my hair. We've surely done all we can reasonably be expected to do to reform him!

Actually, that's the very best option. Unfortunately it requires everyone to ignore him for several weeks, because it could take that long. The process could be likened to a slot machine addict who keeps inserting coins, gets encouraged by an occasional minor win, and then strives to keep looking for the jackpot until he/she becomes convinced the machine has gone cold. You see, these people live for negative attention, so banning them (and criticizing him) just turns them on.

Actually, the whole thing makes sense: This turd has gotten more attention for his fantasies that I've gotten for all my positive posts, even the overwhelmingly nice ones.

Well, he has been banned, come back with his pseudonym slightly changed and promised to better his life.
That's to say, this I wrote before I noticed the ridiculous poll above.
Please everybody, don't vote.

Well, quite.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's getting totally sick of this. I think he should be told to come back in a year's time when hopefully he'll have grown up. Doing nothing is surely not an option.

I think, it is unfair to talk about errors in a book, which is 8 years old. In these former days it was maybe not usual to use compihelp, or maybe the compis were not such strn.  I remember to read this book and I liked it.
  

Best wishes!&&&&Christoph

Does it really matter? After all, the book is 8 years old.

Given that almost any repertoire book 8 or more years old would be riddled with errors based on current practice today, this seems to be a rhetorical question to me.

Or is it a troll? Undecided
