    I'm assuming it's inevitable, though he could go to his grave thinking that at any moment we're going to reverse his ban and beg for him to come back. Anyway, I doubt if he has enough sense to do anything that'd fool the board software, are we gonna insta-ban him, or poke at him for shits and giggles for a while? Either works for me, I just want to know what to expect.

    Castle has a better chance of being readmitted, though given his pride, he won't follow the right process.

    Any Dayton dual will be treated like a Castle or Lesbian Shoes dual.

    His duals will be pretty easy to spot, I'm sure.

    Just keep whacking them down until he gets bored or he gets the message.

    Are you high? That's not Dayton's style at all.

    Shadow banning is a level of dishonesty I hope we never stoop to here.

    For existing members, sure.

    However if someone has already been told they are banned and tries to circumvent that then they are just getting what they were already told would happen.

    Nope. Causing somebody to think their posts can be seen when they can't is still dishonest. If somebody's gonna be banned, then whoever's banning them needs to have the guts to say so.

    I’m not sure you are getting what Bailey is suggesting.
    Dayton and the board have been told he has been banned. Instead of staff wasting time playing whackamole with the inevitable duals, let him waste his own time by shadowbanning the duals.

    Then I’m not understanding you.
    You said a person banned should know they are banned.
    Dayton knows he is banned.

    It's deceptive to let a person think they're posting when they're not. And I don't like using board functions to play games with people.

    In this case Dayton would be playing games with staff by creating duals to get around his ban.

    Meh. I'm not terribly worried about playing wackamole with any Dayton duals.

    Not that I normally contribute, but the process of shadow banning seems to be for an attacker who prolifically tries to get access to mediate their disturbance to other users. I think that would be a big gun that would be awkward and not in the style of WF moderation. Part of the fun of watching people get bounced for trying to sneak in is everyone gets to see the pathetic nature of it and get a laugh. I don't see anyone putting up a sock storm tht would make that needed. Seeing as Lnjun is the most recent addition I see there is not much call for such an action.

    I would also like to say to the mods thank you as you end up cleaning up the shit he stirred out of the pot. Most of our posters, even the ones I hate, are not that level disruptive.

    Well, until you find someone else to constantly derail threads over. My money's on Dinner since so many of you already love to hate him. ;)

    And that's exactly what Dayton himself would say about Dayton's dual. :chris: To be honest I don't even know anything about duals or changing your name (to Shirogayne or whatever) or bans or any of that stuff. That said is Dayton's ban permanent like in this case?
