Idiot [May. 28th, 2001|11:25 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Woke up to find ej2k spammed my latest journal entry with hundreds of stupid posts. Turns out he's pissed because I banned him yesterday from replying in my journal because he asked me a stupid fucking LJ tech support question.

So I suspended his journal in retaliation.

Turned off anonymous posting too.

He'll probably just create a bunch of dummy accounts to harass me now.... need to do the trust metric thing.

I'm glad I have somebody harassing me now... it'll let me focus on features to combat it.

PhotoShop some pictures of him having sex with llamas, put in on his LJ and hope his family reads it.

Seems that he was doing the same thing in several other journals. I'll put it in LJA that his account was suspended so we don't reply unnecessarily, except to let a few users know that it's been taken care of.

Sick all lj users on the guy, grrr!

Since you're working on it anyway, hee, a way to ban people without having to delete comments would be quite snazzy. ;)

been reading that trust metric doc for a few minutes. It makes my head hurt. Probably because it's so early in the morning. (hah! 2pm) Seems very cool though.

I sent you an email awhile back regarding extra security features that would be nice... I would resend it, but doing anything involving the Internet is painful right now. Think you could dig it out?

I was also thinking that logging IP's of users when they are registering new accounts might be worthwhile, too.

Wouldn't that cause problems with IP's that change everytime you log on though? I know mine does. Just a question.

Bugging Brad

That's what I was thinking, too, especially because my weekend was so awful, but I don't think it would have had the same impact if he knew we weren't serious. ;p

Re: arg

I had every right to ban you from my journal ... there are no rules for what I do in my personal journal.

If it's not the FAQ, you file a support request, you don't fucking bug me.

Your entries aren't deleted... just inaccessible because your account is suspended. Temporarily, perhaps.

I wouldn't have suspended you from all of LiveJournal if you hadn't been such an ass and posted all that shit in my journal. We'd suspend anyone that did that.

suspended

Too bad there isn't more info about his location in his profile. I'm sure his school would have been interested in this post about blowing shit up and a picture of a gun citing An AK-47 with a grenade launcher. That should do some damage.

get his ACADEMICS suspended...hehe

Re: suspended

Well, according to his yahoo profile, he's 20, 6'1", brown, green, 190, and according to his ESPN profile, he's in St. Louis, MO.

That doesn't narrow it down, much, but assuming (yeah, yeah, I know) that the picture on his userpic is actually HIM....

(For anyone concerned, I think that took me all of three minutes. :p)

Given his IP addresses, one MIGHT be able to narrow it down further...especially if he is in a really small town outside of STL using a really small local ISP...but that's all conjecture.

Suggestion

I suspect that a lot of the people who try to ask for help in your personal journal do so because they see you listed as the lead programmer/maintainer on the Contributors page. It might be wise to post something on that page in big, bold letters which makes it very clear that people should not come directly to you (or anyone else on that page) for help. Give links to the support area so that they will know exactly where to go. It may even be a good idea to take off the link to your journal and leave just your name on that page. That way it will be harder for people to find you and bug you.
