APK, the things that you do or say to me (or, for that matter, what any bipolar sociopath has to say) don't affect me, other than as a source of entertainment and possibly pity. Go ahead, let's hear again how nothing that I can do will affect you, because from what I hear you're about to see the effects. Slashdot is about to speak in a loud voice that your trollish shit is not welcome. It's a long time coming, and I will have zero sympathy for you when you're gone. You contribute nothing of value to this site, regardless of what you want to believe. In the past you had the opportunity to actually form some sort of small following here, but you completely squandered that opportunity by shitting all over the site at every available opportunity. There's no one who constantly says that you're a bad programmer, your ideas are wrong, etc, everyone always talks shit about your ridiculous behavior. Trying to bitch and moan about people wanting to silence your ideas is complete bullshit, the only thing that needs silencing is your constant flood of crap that contributes nothing. You're not being persecuted like some martyr, you're being blocked for being an abuser. That's what you are, an abuser. You're not some sympathetic persecuted martyr figure, you're just a troll, and you're about to add Slashdot to the long list of technical discussion sites where you are persona non grata. Think about what that says, is it more likely that there are all of these websites out there that have it wrong, or is it more likely that you're just an asshole? What's the simplest explanation for the fact that you are banned from so many discussion sites? You had an opportunity to gain a following with the substance of your posts, but that ship has sailed. At this point you are nothing but a minor nuisance just waiting to get squished by the inevitable shoe. Good riddance, I'll admit that I'll miss the entertainment value of the absurdity of some of your insults and claims, but I'm really not going to miss you. I'll be happy to continue to contact the site owners to let them know how I believe they can improve their service by way of removing you from it. You are determined to be a pain in the ass, so don't be surprised when you're treated like one. And don't try to pull the victim card either like a little bitch, you made your bed and now you get to lie in it. And I know you understand what it means to lie. What's the first rule when dealing with a spammer?

Adios, trollchacho.

Well, I'm not going to be sorry to see him go. He's been trolling me for months after I called him out to stop with all of the spam he posts. I've emailed Slashdot about it asking if they can add some more filters specifically to block his post content (which it sounds like they're going to do), I've been emailing the people he cites as those who recommend his software to let them know how he's using their reputations in his spam, etc. He's been taunting me non-stop about how no one can affect him, etc. I don't know if my specific efforts influenced anything, but I'm glad that he's being treated the way he deserves. If he's going to gloat about defeating the various systems that Slashdot uses to protect against spam, about defeating the moderation system, etc, then he deserves to have additional roadblocks put up in front of him to try and step his crap-flood. Now he's whining about possibly being banned, as if blocking his spam is in any way unjust. He should have thought about that before gloating about defeating the anti-spam and moderation system.

I haven't had the good fortune to read through that thread responding to John Carmack, that's awful. That's one of those things that makes you cringe for the person who doesn't get it. He posts a question to Carmack, and then the next day some AC replies kind of trolling him. 4 days after that the crapflood hits. He posts at (my times) 11:47am, 11:55, 11:58, 12:04, 12:10, 12:25, 12:39, all anonymous replies appearing to come from a third person (not APK), all saying the same crap as if all of a sudden 4 days later a bunch of people reading that at the same time all decided to post responses within an hour of each other, and he's going to assume that people don't know that it's him. It seriously makes me cringe. He feels the need to repeatedly defend his overclocking skills apparently. He follows that flood up with another 3 posts over the next 2 days still saying the same crap just for good measure. And here we are, nearly 14 years later, and his behavior hasn't changed at all. Think about that, zero personal growth over 14 years. I'd love to know what had to happen in childhood to damage a person like that, Im genuinely curious about what makes him tick. It's like encountering some bizarre animal that shouldn't be able to survive for more than a few years, but here's one 50 years later and you just want to know how that happened.

He'll probably reply to this and still link to my previous comment and claim again that he "won" and that I must accept that he's right.

Of course he will, that's all he does. After all, your comment failed to prove him "technically and validly wrong", right? Therefore, obviously he won. It doesn't matter that you're not trying to prove him wrong in the first place and that he's the only one playing that game, he still wins. That's the game, it's called "I win", and he's the only one who ever plays it. Then he'll follow up that post with 4 other anonymous posts where he refers to himself in the third person but still uses phrases like "you fail vs. apk" which only he ever uses (how many times have you used "vs." in normal conversation over the last month?), and he'll assume that no one knows that he's the one making those posts in support of himself. Then he'll come along again and post a reply to his anonymous self thanking himself for the support. And, just for good measure, he'll also accuse you of everything that you've accused him of doing, because he learned the "I know you are but what am I?" strategy in grade school and doesn't want to let that one go. This is the APK "debate" strategy in a nutshell. He concludes it all by stating (repeatedly; very, very repeatedly) that you have "eaten your words" and claims some sort of grand victory. He'll probably also manage to call you effete or something, he calls people effete a lot. I'm not sure what that says about his self-confidence or sense of masculinity, but he definitely calls everyone else effete.

I don't think the OP was talking about people who use their real names. Taking Slashdot as an example, I think that examples like girlintraining or Gaygirlie are what was being referred to, the latter of which also decided to use her username to reveal her sexuality in addition to her gender. People who use their real names aren't doing so necessarily to point out their gender, they're just using their real name. People who use an anonymous username that reveals their gender apparently think that everyone should specifically be aware of their gender, as if that matters.

After so many years of the Slashdot management seeming fairly hands-off (after the initial sale, anyway), it's great to see an active effort here. I'm glad that you guys are looking at what people are saying and responding to issues, that's a great sign. There might have been a Q&A thread that I missed, but are there any plans to add support for Unicode? What about the "APK problem", are you guys looking at possible solutions for things like that?

In case you're curious, this is how APK spent his day yesterday. I see about 7 waking hours throughout the day when he was not trolling Slashdot, although I may have missed a few posts. All times are correct at least for my timezone. The vast majority of these are replies to you (that's how it's easy to find them - just go through your post history and he's there like stink on shit), some of the ones late at night were trolling replies to me. This is who we're dealing with. Something tells me that this is not a one-off thing for him, I think this is his normal day. He goes online and trolls all day, and spends a few hours to eat, shit, masturbate, play games, etc.

Note this is only for yesterday. He's back today continuing his crap flood and I haven't even included any of those posts, these are just for the 9th (my time).

Since when do systems allow brute-force attacks on PIN numbers? Many systems have been locking out (or slowing down) logins after a certain number of failed attempts for a long time now.

Yes, and obviously the IRS is using such a system. They have a rule in their firewall which says something like "if the IP address makes 100,000 requests within a minute, then block it." Boom, problem solved. Intrusion Detection systems have come a long way, and the IRS is leading the way.

I don't think their position is naive. People who block ads might be more savvy than the general population, but those people have also gone out of their way specifically to block ads. It's true that they do hate advertising, or at least the practical effects of it (slow page loading, possible malware, etc).

Sadly, they've caught on to this and now don't even serve up the answer on the page.

Is that why I don't see them on Google any more?

I seem to remember blocking from appearing in my search results on Google if I'm logged in, but I don't even see a place where I can manage that list now.
