Default DAC Member Banned

A fairly new but outspoken member on the DAC community has been banned from the forum. I just want to set the record straight before all the conspiracy theories pop up on facebook or anywhere else that there was a motive here.

This person was warned that having multiple names and posting inciting and antagonizing posts under fake names was against DAC rules. He was previously asked to stop and did not.

Late last night this same person reappeared again under a fake name, had an agenda and made several posts under 3 different threads.

The moderators investigated and the user name was traced to the same IP Address as all the others. Case closed.

All you need to do is look through the threads. It'll show "banned" under the members' names. I've found two; not sure if there are others.

Eh, the posting syntax and behavior of the two accounts really doesn't seem similar to me, but I spend way too much time trying to ban alt accounts on various platforms.

For those trying to research this topic, a ban can be for a set time frame with reinstatement as short as 7 days or all the way to being permanent. There was another member banned recently but that is a time out ban and not permanent.

this person has already re-registered and posted whilst being banned again. I suspect when its late evenings on the East Coast he will relaunch again post the agenda until rediscovered and banned again as that appears to be his M.O.

In all seriousness I believe that he doesn't live alone and there are multiple people living at the same address using the same Wi-Fi. I don't expect you to believe that but I've no reason to doubt him.

To be fair he hadn't posted anything objectionable anyway.

Hey Mods.

You ever hear of more than One person living in same house?

We are 4 living Here for now because we all work from Home and do not need to lose minds from Social Distance.

Rules of forum say 1 account per Person.

They do not say about more than 1 account per Household. or more than 1 per IP address.

Frenjamin has Degree in Computer Science. if he wanted to have an alt account not detected' he would not be detected. Other idiots in the house don't even know how to use a proxy right.

For record. this is my first and only account. If you ban. you will have no Legit rules of forum to back you up.

I am going to leave this thread up for comical reasons. We are a lot smarter then you think..Our inside sources go way above and beyond anything you can throw at us. A degree in computer science is a joke compared to the resources we have. Now if you'll excuse me I want to go watch Olivia Newton John sing Xanadu..I love that video its the long extended version with the roller skaters too..I have a much more impressive degree earned watching you tube videos..

Thanks! This is awesome! Olivia and Linda Ronstadt were my two favourite recording artists (in the rock/pop category) when growing up.

I think it was CNN, that had a wonderful documentary on Linda Ronstadt. I watched it a couple of times.

I'd say the odds of two housemates having the same niche hobby that is diecast aircraft collecting are very low, and four separate individuals all sharing the interest? Fuggitaboutit! Unless, of course, in your housemate ad you specifically mentioned "must be aviation geeks and into diecast models to live here"

Funny how you knew that fact before he posted it. I guess you two talk behind the scenes.

"To be fair he hadn't posted anything objectionable anyway"

Really?? how would you feel if someone created a DAC name of StretRichton and belittled your website?? Or how about ChardStret Riton and continued to berate you and your website. Would that be okay with you?? how about several more times when asked to stop?? what if it was 4 roomates all living together with the same IP address and kept it up.. If so then we were wrong.

I suggest another review because you make no sense.

He's on Facebook - I asked him what he'd done to get banned this morning. It's not a conspiracy that I know him.

In terms of your 2nd comment I'm an individual and Gemini are a corporation, plus I have given no reason for someone to do that (whereas Gemini's behaviour has been rather poor) and my website gets belittled fairly regularly by the usual suspects anyway.

Once again anything he posted about Gemini has nothing to do with DAC does it? Was he banned because of the whole Geminikits thing or specific comments he made on DAC? I'm confused.

I agree the ability to sign up under pseudonyms on forums is rather anachronistic but it is what it is.

Geminis behavior has been rather poor?? That's interesting since no one from Gemini Corp participates on this forum..

You're the admin so I'm not looking to pick a fight but this is a discussion forum about models. One of the largest brands has undertaken a series of actions against individuals and companies over the past few years, which there's plenty of documentary evidence for. I'd consider the majority of them to be poor form so it is hardly surprising they have created some resentment in the hobby and some pushback. They should be all open to discussion on the forum.

We can barely discuss these things here and the Geminikitz thing, which I repeat was absolutely nothing to do with me, was not allowed to be discussed either.

Earlier incidentally you said: "We are a lot smarter then you think..Our inside sources go way above and beyond anything you can throw at us." Do you mean the almighty power of DAC Admins in this sentence or somebody else? It is unclear but considering the owners of this site seem to barely register its existence I doubt they are providing their admins with sources or in fact anything at all.

In the end it is effectively your forum so you can take the remedial action you see fit.

Totally wrong it is not my forum its everyones forum.. every anti Gemini post about their products including pictures has never been deleted and left posted unless there is a hidden agenda by one or two individuals who want to stir trouble..

I cant discuss the behind the scenes knowledge but you are 100% correct it is no one from the ownership of DAC.. Lets just say its acquaintances in very very very high places with a strong knowledge and access to how things work.

I think this thread has worn out its use, so I am closing it as I agree no need to pick an argument.. Richard your participation and input here is well accepted and most everyone looks forward to your reviews. Either way, the individual or individuals referenced will continue to register in the wee hours of the am with another bogus name, another bogus post and yet still, another thread deletion to follow..
