I'm consequently now averaging 4 days per charge, which on a 3.5 year old dual SIM phone running Android 9 syncing to two email servers is not bad. And yes, it does have this November's security updates applied.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Is that what they massage - I have wondered :-)

    Raphael has just been given a final ban after persistent attempts at annoying the residents. It is several years since the site was faced with this level of disruption.

    We have a list of permanently banned ex-members, and the list refers to people in the real world rather than usernames. For reference the complete list at the moment is

    JJ
    Someone threatening litigation
    A chap from Ontario
    Glaswegian
    Glen Labella
    Andy/Grumpy
    Paula/Agnes
    Greg
    Raphael

    That's around one permanent ban per 20 months. I'll edit if I've forgotten anyone but I think it's complete.

    Spammer usernames are permanently banned too but they're just anonymous bots with no real world existence.

    Nobody on that list has ever been banned for inanity, incoherence or unacceptable opinion, it's always been disruption of the site. If unacceptable opinion or incoherence were criteria I'd have been flung off long since.

    So to my question. When the site has been provoked to this extreme extent, do we think we ought to out the person behind the username as a general warning to the Internet at large, or are we content that people like this should retain anonymity and continue to cause indefinite damage elsewhere with no lasting trail.
