BANHAMMER TIME!: OK, I think rcade's prophecy has come true. No, not the one about the Pope. The one about idiot posters and trolls. I'm sure you've seen this guy 's three consecutive identical posts on the FP. I am initiating the Daily Invocation of the Banhammer!

rcade has been roughed up by Vatican heavies and has abandoned us.

Garf. Look, man - now you have to rumble with this guy. Trust me, I know how this works. I've seen movies.

I'd like to be banned as well. Actually, I would just like my account to be deleted if possible. I tried emailing admin@sportsfilter.com about it but the email was returned. Thanks,

Doesn't this seem suspiciously like metatalk? Bad posts, insults, threats and people asking Matt the Pantheon to delete their account.

I quite liked his poem about Paula Radcliffe, but I support the banhammer in this case.

Argh. Hey, where's that thread where we were riffing on the meta of a typical Metafilter thread? Time to dust it off. Hilarious.

Maybe if we give him a cupcake every time he posts something good, we can reinforce the positive behavior.

Vegas has set the Over/Under on this guy's age at 13. You gotta be able to do better than linking to gay.com. Get him out.

Maybe if we give him a cupcake every time he posts something good, we can reinforce the positive behavior. And if he posts something bad, we stick his nose in it and say "Bad!! No!!"

And if he posts something bad, we stick his nose in it and say "Bad!! No!!" Are we still talking about Paula Radcliffe here, or the cupcake?

Are we still talking about Paula Radcliffe here, or the cupcake? I think we're talking about Paula Radcliffe's cupcakes. Poop jokes! Poop jokes! How funny!
