Let me start with I *know* I should let this go and not feed the trolls. I know it, I can feel it in my bones just ignore him.
But for some reason with this one I can't.

So with the above being said.
game-protect has now left over 100 negative feedbacks to anyone who dares to
1) Support the flags against him
2) Participate in a signature campaign that he does not like.
3) Make any negative comment against him.

Take a look here.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=874254

Yes, I got 3 from him.
Since he has massive negative trust and is 99.999% never going to make it onto any trust list it really does not matter.

However,

Posting this to 50+ members profiles:

Children reading the extremely mentally ill brain wash nonsense shit of this bitcointalk account are at a high risk of getting mentally abused!

Or this one to subSTRATA profile:
Quote
You abused all children who had contact with you!]You abused all children who had contact with you!

Is there a limit to what will be tolerated?

I think there is and he went way past it.

If @theymos or any staff says no he didn't then I will listen to them, let it go, and ignore gp.

BUT, I do think there should be some kind of discussion about what is permitted and what is not.

Thanks for reading my ramblings.
-Dave

I don't think anyone has ever been banned for spamming feedback on trust walls. I do recall theymos deleting some feedback by some dumbass who spammed thousands of lines on multiple user's trust walls, but other than that I don't recall anything happening in regards to control or act against spam/retaliatory/troll-based/garbage feedback. And the reason for little to no action is because the trust feedbacks are supposed to left unmoderated to avoid collusion related crap.

You aren't rambling, my man, and it's gotten past the point where people should just ignore him--and you can't exactly put your own feedback on ignore anyway.  Usually negs from non-DT members can be safely ignored, but game-protect is going above and beyond what's acceptable, especially since some folks see him to be one of the good guys (don't know why that is).

I did give him a negative and I excluded him from my trust list.  I don't know about supporting that flag, because I haven't read the entire scam accusation against him and I'm not completely sure he's a scammer.  But he's certainly a trust spammer and he's doing some damage to people's reputation which isn't justified.  I think Theymos ought to consider banning him and perhaps removing his spam feedbacks.

Here's the catch though, the more we discuss about his recent behavior the more he becomes popular and what ever he's promoting gets popular. So far his feedback hasn't had any effect so they are just one of those worthless troll feedbacks (atleast that's what I consider those he left on my account to be). A retaliation either won't help matters.

I would suggest a suspension on his account, disabled his ability to leave feedback on accounts and possibly delete every other feedbacks he have left especially the most recent which don't have any reasonable backings.

Well, there’s this to go by:

Trust spam isn't allowed. If I see anyone posting dozens of fake trust ratings (from one account or many alt accounts), I will delete all of their ratings <…>
I agree that it is a little annoying to see a wall of negative ratings, but this is in the "untrusted" section. The way things are set up currently, untrusted ratings can be easily spammed in a number of ways. That's why those ratings are hidden by default.
The quote is from 2014, so it’s a long standing complaint that crops up every now and then due to childish retaliation feedback, or spamming otherwise on the Trust feedback.

May be theymos needs to do this exception for GP too. Lately he (GP) turned to be a celebrity of the forum. :-P


I did give him a negative and I excluded him from my trust list.   

His trust rating,


I do not think anymore neg is going to do anything for him. He seems do not care about all at all.

Quote

I know theymos banned someone named John K or something long ago (can not remember it much). He can do the same for GP too or at least restrict him to leave feedback for others and remove the existing feedback he left for others.

Something seriously needs to be done against him.

@DaveF, sorry bud. I totally forgot about it earlier. Good work.

Exactly. Had I gotten one about the wolfbet sig, something about it it might not be legit because of "X" reason. I most likely would have ignored it. Even if he tagged everyone in the campaign. But calling it illegal, the retaliatory trust spam, the walls of text have gotten to be an issue.

Makes you wonder if a straight timer would work:
You can leave 1 feedback per hour, counted from your last feedback.
For every current DT 1 member that leaves you negative feedback that adds an hour to that count.
theymos (and people he trusts) can set your feedback timer to whatever they want that with no restrictions.
And done.
You want to leave 100+ feedbacks after getting dinged by just 2 DT 1 members that's 300+ hours assuming you never miss the window to post.

You want to leave a wall of spam, great it's going to take you weeks. By then some mod or someone else can take a look before it gets to this point. Would be a quicker fix.

None of this would help the current situation but could make the mods life easier in the future.

Bumping this because in the 11 days since he has left another 15 negative feedback's for people who supported the flag against him, or spoke out against him.
Yes, I know stop feeding the troll.

But I really think it's time to get some mods on board with a nice ban for him.

I do not think he'll get banned for all his inconsequential feedbacks as they really do not hold any ground, so no need paying any attention to him and his feedbacks.
Though they(his feedbacks)could be considered as worthless spamming, which could get his account nuked for 7 days as a warning to him, if this continues then maybe a 15 and 30 days ban respectively, which if no change, then a perma ban for the account just as the rules posits.
The mods will have to decide on that based on the severity of his offence(s).

He is already so famous, without his recent trust spam.

The other one i guess has done nearly the same and got an Temp ban for that !  Damn cant find the User for now .
If what people talked is true, game-protect was temparory banned weeks ago. It is just assumption and what we talked about, because it is a bit abnormal to see that account was inactive for several days.

I will say no more if that will surely ban him for good, it seems he has a huge time to spare to give those childish feedbacks.

Deserves him right, because if there's no basis with the accusation against him then why so serious on all those things? I am guessing he got 60 or more days of ban.

I don't know about supporting that flag, because I haven't read the entire scam accusation against him and I'm not completely sure he's a scammer.

TL;DR

The scam accusations against him are based on the fact that he's offering a service to "protect" you from casino's scamming you.
Some sort of crypto casino insurance scheme, if I remember correctly. Though he has no actual power to actually do anything, while he's still charging you.

Not sure if he's still actually charging people, but I remember that's how he started out and that was the main reason why he got negative feedback in the beginning.
