for putting up with the nonsense that's been spoiling your enjoyment of the forum over the past 18 hours or so.
As many of you have realised, we've been subjected to a barrage of offensive posts from a person who has a grudge against me - because I banned him from the forum. By behaving in this way the person concerned has confirmed that I was right to take the action I did, but that's not much consolation to those of you who have been trying to obtain/provide help and advice.
The problem wasn't helped by the fact that I was in an aircraft for several hours this morning, and was blissfully unaware of what was happening in my absence. Other people in the office stepped into the breach and provided some excellent backup, and my thanks goes to them, too.
Those of you (and there were many) who emailed me should all have received an acknowledgment by now - albeit a hasty two words of thanks, but some people may have slipped through the net - I'm sorry if that's happened to you, please accept this as my belated thanks for your help.
I'm not saying the problem's over, but we're taking certain steps to deal with the person involved, and I hope he realises that he's doing himself no good by behaving in such a way.
Thanks, once again, for all your help and patience today.
Have you considered doing a bit of digging on this person FE. There is probable cause for you to bring this to the police attention as this is a family oriented site and I assume you are going to get hold of this persons ISP and inform them of their "lovely user". I am one of the many that had the misfortune to click the links but like most of the others realised it before the page loaded and closed promptly.
My thanks to you for bringing it under control so fast.
