    Bless you for this, John. I downloaded it and it seemed to work. But then I dug a little deeper and tried to access it while logged off. The file retains WF permissions. So unless you're logged on with Blue Room access, you can't get past the first page.

    Why this fuss over Dayton, he was given plenty of chances to save his diary himself. @shootER warned him a few times that once he was banned, he would lose access to it, and that he should find a way save it. Over the years he was given more chances than anyone would have been given. Yet he persisted in his behavior, even when he was banned previously, he as still given access to his diary. And he used his diary to continue to troll. He cannot learn, or refuses to learn. Either way, he isn't owed anything, and supplying him with a copy of his diary does nothing except show him that he can continue and still get what he wants. He also tried to bypass hus ban by using Injeun's account. Which I'm sure was Dayton's plan when the Injeun account was created.

    Fuck him, he's shit on this several times, and has shit on anything anyone has done for him on here. He's gone, why waste any more effort on him. He was aware of what would happen, he lost his access to his diary to his own actions, nothing more, nothing less.

    Yeah the file is only page 1. I think you need to make the webpage show all posts on one page and then zip that. Otherwise when you click to go to page 2 it takes you to a browser and direct to WF.

    Or another option. We unban Dayton but don’t give him blue room access. Wait about a week. Tell him we are having permission difficulties. Then one day we fix it, let him into the blue room, and after he first accesses the thread...BAM! Ban hammer is back and he’s gone again forever!!!

    There are people who go away and people who do not. Remember Dayton was trying to get people here to post for him on sites he was banned from decades ago. Nothing will satisfy him. He will keep on coming. That is what he does. That is all he does. If he lives for fifty more years he will still find a reason to come here.

    Nothing you can do will change this with a person like dayton. The only thing you can do is decide whether or not you want to ignore him. You can never drive this sort of person away or satisfy his longings. You have to cut him off. He will never change. He will never forget. He will never improve.

    This is not with everyone, but I have met people like him and that is how it goes. Do as you will, but don't fool yourself with him.

    As someone with zero skin in this game, whats the issue with just doing as John suggested, give him read only BR access for a limited time only and then he can do the hard work of downloading and archiving it himself? Even better if you could manage to just give him access to that thread so he was totally locked out of everyone elses thread? Can you maybe set up a Dayton only room and move the thread to there? Just access to that room for 1 week with no posting abilities from anyone?

    ^If that is a shit load of work then I agree, tell him to pay one of his sympathisers to download the thing for him, or tell him to beat it.

    I think it's risky to give him Blue Room access, knowing it's only temporary. He would have access to everyone else's Blue Room threads too. Probably can't be limited access to just one thread without creating a separate forum just for him. Also, who knows what personal information others shared within Dayton's BR thread. I doubt people would be comfortable letting Dayton have that, because they posted with the understanding it wasn't meant to leave the BR.

    Though, he probably isn't even capable of downloading his own BR thread, much less others.

    Fuck him.
    Us old TNZ vets have put up with him for 20 years.
    Counting his Starlog letters, he's been a troll for 30.

    If it were me, I'd delete the thread, and video record myself doing it, and e-mail him the video file.
    Then block his e-mail.

    I was thinking, I could open the file in a text editor, then replace all the avatars with porn thumbnails, any links with porn links, and change the entries to refer to homoerotic entries. And them email it to him.

    But that's way too much effort.

    Any way, I just found out something hilarious, but I'll keep it to myself for now.

    Is there any consideration of just moving the thread out into the Green Room for a period? Then Dayton could get at it without logging on. The only downside I can think of is it loses the privacy it had in the Blue Room, but I could ask him if he'd be up for it. Because otherwise I've got something like 195 more cut/paste/e-mails to do and I can really think of things I'd rather be doing.
