  • I requested that the two offensive users in that thread be banned. You can also report the abuse in this thread:

  • Also, the moderator in that forum should not wait,  but delete these messages immediately. Do we have enough moderators in that forum? If not, there needs to be a request for moderator.

  • I submitted two requests, one for each of the abusive users in the thread. The first was banned (I got an email this morning confirming) and those replies must have been deleted, but it looks like the second user was not banned as I can still see the posts. I thought to ban because I saw no legitimate activity in the profiles.

  • Last time I checked that thread it had a few absolutely inappropriate responses. The moderator should delete them immediately and request these users to be banned.

  • Some of the abusive posts are still there.  I'm going to unmark as answer for this thread until I see that it's been resolved.

    The abusive user changed their profile name, could that have given somebody the slip?

    Maybe _I_ should be a moderator.  hmmmm....

  • I requested that both user names in the thread (when I first viewed it yesterday) be banned. One got banned in a few hours. I think the other request got lost. I just submitted a second request to have the remaining user banned (since there is no legitimate activity in their profile). When a user is banned, all of their posts disappear.

    Maybe that forum needs another moderator. This Wiki describes the process:

    In the section "How to Become a Moderator", note the link in item # 9, where you can make your request.

  • Jundan Wu reported the two users have been banned. When I check the profile, there is no activity. As yet I see the one user's replies in the thread, but the avatar is missing. It must take awhile to remove all activity.

  • @Richard Mueller, I see the same -- that the avatar is missing but the replies are still there.  I'll give it some time.

    I'm waiting 16+ hours now though.
