Besides, you are expected to do some of the work too.

Do you see why he is barred?

Re: Interesting Conversation

I do except that I do not know what wrong he has done recently that should bar him or why everyone telling something new is GiB.

also, what posts did you remove here?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Agnishom, what wrong he is doing is ban evasion. I am sure the staff gave him a couple of chances even after which he conducted misbehaviour. Once a troll, always a troll.

As for telling which user is a GiB, we're talking about the best combinatorist in Vegas. Surely he can pick out those who behave similarly to GiB. Plus, just a few minutes after RNG was banned, a new account named GiB was created, which is proof that RNG was GiB.

Re: Interesting Conversation

Nope, bobbym just renamed RNG to GiB.

And is that how the best biologist at MIT does proofs?

Re: Interesting Conversation

He did? Afterwards I saw "newest member" as RNG.

I would say the best biologist here is Prof. Lander. Probably one of the best in the country. And proofs are for mathematicians, not us.

Re: Interesting Conversation

While GiB was there, all the posts done by RNG appeared to be done by GiB.

Re: Interesting Conversation

I don't quite understand what you mean. Do you mean after RNG was renamed, all his posts were under GiB's name and then he was renamed RNG again?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Oh. I thought GiB was a different account from RNG.

But you do realize that bobbym banned him because he thought he was GiB (which he probably was). However, on a forum like PF, he would be banned instantly because what he said was not mainstream computer science (as they call it, "crackpot stuff").

I don't think he would be able to reply to it and it would just bait him to come here.

I think chooipian's suggestion should be taken into consideration. He's been troubling bobbym and company for several years.

Re: Interesting Conversation

bobbym alone is doing a fine job. I do not like the police guys.

The police do a one-time job. Bobbym and others have to do this every few weeks.

Re: Interesting Conversation

You want GiB to be locked up behind the bars?

Re: Interesting Conversation

If he has done other things like other cyber crimes (which I think he has) then the police will take the appropriate decision. Most likely it would result in a warning.

Anyway, I do not think they send mentally ill people to jail. Maybe an asylum.

Re: Interesting Conversation

What if he is cleverer than the police?

You did not watch the front page yesterday did you? That is the reason why he is barred.

By the order of MIF he is not to be allowed back into the forum. Once anyone is permanently barred that is final. There is no changing your username and coming back. The rules are the same for everyone.

You seem to think that the people being barred are not GiB. Nothing could be further from the truth. I do not bar him until I am 100% sure of his identity.
