There is a new active mining thread which is self moderated - unlike the old thread which was thinly moderated, the new thread is heavily moderated to remove spammy troll posts (the obvious ones, from known individuals)

New Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=462370.140

The same person keeps posting the same thing at the same time from multiple different accounts. The posts (all duplicates) get reported but no action is being taken.

I noticed a comment in another thread which discusses the problem https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=405950.new#new which suggested the only option was to leave the thread as a free-for-all. With the old seldom moderated thread I can see that concern, however with the new heavily moderated thread the actions of these trolls is only destructive and disruptive. Every troll post is being deleted, but within minutes the same post has been re-added.

We can self moderate the shit out of this thread but it's futile unless mod's step up and clear out the copy-paste-multi-account-trash.

Moderators very rarely moderate self moderated threads. Self moderation is exactly that, you moderate it yourself (OP).

I appreciate that - but there isn't a "ban from thread" option - if there was there wouldn't be a problem.

Can you point out the offenders to me and I can recommend a ban if needed? (super busy atm)

3. mainline

Definitely all the same person - there are also three other accounts I believe Bargraphics has confirmed are the same person as above:

1. NotOP
2. Sporket
3. truffix

I expect a few more will crop up - it would be good to have an efficient way to deal with this in the future.

So even if someone posts off topic etc you won't remove them because it's down to the owner of that thread?

If you ask someone to leave your topic and they keep posting, they will be banned. PM me in such cases.

Thank you Theymos - and sorry for the impending flood of PM's (just anticipating...) - I'll send a message to all offending accounts and see what happens.

Can these posts be removed while we wait for you to ban them if they do keep posting or should we leave them up for you to see?

That's for self moderated threads only, other types of threads aren't considered to be owned by the OP. I do know the issues you're referring to though, I'll pm you about it.

Bargraphics:
You're correct in some of your assertions.  I was tired of your fellow "investors" insisting I was Eduardo de Castro, and it was simpler to make this account than to argue.

You're also an alt, created to shill for Terrahash.  You have now deleted the bulk of your posts, but the interweb nevar forgets.  In your earliest remaining post, "[WTS] Terrahash DX-Large 180 GH w/ PSU - First Batch (June 19, 2013, 08:36:02 PM)," made just 19 days after you created this account, you unload your Terrahash preorder.  Speaks volumes, as do all of the Terrahash and now Active Mining posts.

Now you're upset that people are making it difficult for you to apply the same template to your new boss "investment" -- Active Mining.
What you fail to understand is how the internet works:  Your lulzy spins on the Active Mining fiasco, your invite-only #actm chan and the series of started and abandoned self-moderated threads have backfired, and now you're experiencing the Streisand Effect.

As much as I'd love to ban your ilk not just from this forum, but from Bitcoin as a whole, I realize that running to authorities is not an option.  Instead, I'm going to continue making this place as inhospitable to both scammers and their victims.  Though cruel, it's the right chemo to rid Bitcoin of this disgusting  cancer.

Crumbs free and delicious and truthful at the same time:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=479297

De-castroized, too!  De-decastroized?

Point being, it will have no graphic images and no vermin.

All of the alts listed above are confirmed as the same person. Hundreds of identical posts have been deleted. Most of the alts have been PM'ed and asked to desist. The poster is clearly aware they are not welcome.

Mod's please take action now.

Troll admitting to just causing work

(Posting this here, got deleted from the censored thread.)

LOL... Can you all please stop deleting and reposting all those images? It keeps on bumping this thread with no new information in it.

Knowing that your fate is sealed and nothing can be done to change it is... It's emotionally crippling. I'm helping these "shareholders" by giving them a purpose, a target for their anger, and some busywork (deleting my posts) to keep them occupied.  As a bonus, working towards a common cause instills camaraderie.

This sort of thing is crucial for morale during disasters like this one.

@Bargraphics:  Didn't realize how much fail Active Mining has brought to this forum.  Ban every mention of it I say, burn its carcass and salt the fields as you leave.

Bitdust has joined them in spamming - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=216547

You will likely receive a lot of PMs if we were to PM you for every account that is reposting the images/trolling. I assume this would be more effective so other mods could take care of it. But if you only want PMs I will do that.

How is it you don't see the beauty of this arrangement?  If not for me, you would now have to admit that you have (once again) been had, that (once again) there's nothing left to do but build up a new stash of coin and wait for the next scammer to come along Undecided
