The person who is reporting them should probably just be made a mod and I've suggested so in the past.
If he's that spot-on and is responsible for this many members getting banned, he not only should be made a mod but tapped for forum sainthood or something.  I was wondering what was going on this past couple of days with so many new ban appeal threads in Meta.  It was quiet for a bit and then suddenly exploded.

is it just a coincidence that this accounts are getting banned as bitcoin is experiencing some upward price trend
Yeah, probably just a coincidence but who knows.  This forum tends to get very active when bitcoin starts up on one of its bull runs, and it gets a lot of noobs trying to join campaigns/bounties, trying to scam with loans, and a bunch of other shenanigans.  I'm not sad that all these accounts got the boot.  On the contrary, I hope the pace of banning them picks up.

If whoever he/she is or who they are that job is worthy of praise eliminating people that doesn't make an effort over what he/she post because from what I see here on Meta most banned accounts are linked to plagiarism. What makes me boggle is the Meta board is experiencing spam over this issues and hoping sooner or later banned appeals will have its own board or childboard here in Meta.

I'm pretty curious on who that user is, let me guess?
ICOEthics? Coolcryptovator? Last guess would be iasenko?

I think you missed one potential member who could do this work!

Veleor

He is been spotting Plagraized Posts from much time too.



Even if a decent contributing member is banned in this saga, he could just appeal about it. As Theymos has already said this is a case-by-case approach and would be handled same.

Bot will be the most shitty idea. And like in movies, his creator will be banned by cold hearted machine  Grin

Moderators Admins will always check the reports for legitimacy. There will be no bans where it's not cleat that a user is a plagiarizer or at least I don't know any user being banned without reason.
Ban is the hardest punishment and therefore an individual checking by mods admins is inevitable.

Patrollers (at one point, the majority of mods were patrollers -- moderators of newbies) can ban Brand New and Newbie accounts.

I have no idea how he spots them but he does a good job.
Suchmoon is transparently one of the people who is reporting plagiarized posts (I am not sure if this is who you are referring to). She is transparently scraping posts in the forum and putting them in some kind of database, which is concerning for a variety of reasons, including the type of business she is in and her lack of integrity. She is most probably cross referencing posts in her database with some other database and/or with google/another search engine.

She also targets, in part specific members, and I know this because she was able to cite a plagiarized post that Redsn0w created from many years ago that was written in a thread with a very small number of posts, and the most recent post in the thread was also from many years ago. I would not make her a mod, and I think a decent number of people would leave if she was made a mod, or if it was discovered she was a mod.


All of the posts here are all public with the exception of a few boards? (No idea what they are, not the point) so if all the information is public anyway, why does it matter if its collected and saved or not? If you think anything you publicly post on the internet isn't saved than you are just kidding yourself. 

rent my signature just PM me, or pay me to not post ;P

For those who suspect me, It's not me. I would love to spare some more free time to investigate them but nowadays I have just small 5-10 min breaks in which I visit the forum and it's mainly for reading.

It's summer time and when I finish building the new veranda I'll have my free time Smiley

Good to hear that the system is working, good luck to the one who is doing it Smiley

Oh, I'm sure the pathetic people that target you have gone over every post multiple times...

Just out of curiosity, do we catch now only the copy-pasters or we can catch those using word spinners as well with this script??
