We'll all be having a discussion and he just pops up and posts

Quote:
Antagonistic, insulting, or otherwise disruptive comments ARE NOT welcome here.

Please use the icon when you see disruptive or antagonistic comments or any other violations of the Community Rules. This serves two purposes:

1- using the icon will bring that post to the attention of forum moderators so they can deal with it appropriately. We prefer that you not respond to the post directly. Responding invites the offender to continue, and if you respond aggressively you may end up dragging yourself down with the offender.

2- if enough users flag a post using the icon then that post will be hidden from general view, preventing others from being exposed to it.

Thanks!


It's never on topic for the thread subject. Even worse, he sometimes posts it several times in the same thread.

How do we go about getting this spammer dealt with?

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

This is awesome, because I've never even thought of being asinine and Xing them! I wonder if I'll get a warning for doing so.....

I've flagged Octavian's interventions once or twice in the past in order to register displeasure and disagreement (because he locked the threads in question).

Nothing happened.

Me, too, though I do it semi-regularly, as over time Octavian locks a fair few threads with little justification.

The worst that is going to happen is that I think they can set your flags to not count.

Dump and lock happened again just today (no notification post, so probably not him).

I've had confirmation from time to time that my flags do still count
