Agreed. I at first thought he was just a lousy writer, but after reading his short-yet-rambling posts - capped off with a single nonsense option - it's pretty clear he's just another (or perhaps the same?) Troll out to jerk everyone around. Now, I'm going to pray that he dies of syphilis, but it's best not to assume that will happen anytime soon. Best to simply ban him. Is there no way to delete these spam posts?

There is a way to deleted them, but it's a bit complicated. It will take some time to get through all the bad posts. I did set it to prevent posting, so hopefully no more new posts from that account.

(sighs)

I totally know that, and understand it's not an option. I felt bad about having asked as soon as I posted it.

(sighs again)

I guess I'll just have to hope he dies of all that syphilis my prayers gave him...because the cadence and flow of his idiot posts is far to similar to earlier 'trolls' we've dealt with. It's the same guy - getting kicked out, waiting several months, then rejoining and doing it all over again. It's such a pissy, bratty thing to do...

If I remember phpBB correctly, you should have an option in the admin interface to delete all of someone's posts when you kick them off, right?

Thank for the heads up, I thought he might have been, but it also seemed like a valid comment in the right place. So it was hard to make a clean call on it.
