    We seem to have someone, probably the same person, that keeps registering and then posting stupid or offensive stuff - they do seem to get deleted but perhaps some method of control may be in order?

    Another forum I belong to allows joining but then restricting the first new post from the person for 7 days - not ideal but could be a deterrent?

    Ah - the offender seems to have been removed while I was typing the above message. Good . . . but I guess he/she will be back

    This has been going on for some time. It does appear to be the same person under different guises as the posts are very similar, mostly nonsensical childish rubbish. At a loss to know how someone's life can be so empty as to need to do this, perhaps it's the only way they can get themselves noticed. I do wonder if they are self aware enough to realise this; if they are aware of this they must have very low self esteem, if they aren't they must be very stupid.

    Mental health problem or personally disorder. They probably know they have problems but that's just how some people are. It's the abuse and horrible posts that appear here that get in the way but I just ignore until it's sorted. I expect more to come

    No doubt they'll keep on trying with new accounts. I mean of all places.. The screwfix forum!!

    Gotta laugh at how desperate they are to getting the attention of DIY /building nerds like us.
