I can't ban, but I can mark users as spambots, which coincidentally bans an IP address anyway. And this douche has been marked as such.

MentalMachine, aka DomonX2, YamadaKun, RagnaVII, or Chang Wufei will no longer be gracing us with his cancerous presence. So rejoice, and pass the word along. Thanks.

Excellent. I must say that ANN seems to be acting faster and more decisively to deal with habitual trouble-makers these days and the policy is bearing fruit. It's no accident that the recent Fall Preview discussion thread was one of the more temperate ones in recent memory.

Keep up the good work!

Very pleasing - ANN has become a less hostile place since the recent bans and suspensions.

Yep, same exact IP address for all those accounts.

Wow, that's surprising after reading that. I didn't know Mentalmachine, DomonX2, Yamadakun, RagnaVII, and Chang Wufei were one in the same Shocked . Great detective work there. Smile

ok, so this is either a very eerie coincidence, or the guy found away around the IP ban, but Yamada appears to have returned, this time under ReverseTitan. I've been suspicious about it since he first started posting, but his recent post in the Accel World review is exactly the same thing he has said when posting as all his other aliases.

Huh, that's interesting. I believe someone in the community forum already posited that it was the same guy a while ago. Although from what I recall, Keonyn said it wasn't the same IP (although I guess it couldn't be with the ban) and didn't send up any warning flags as a proxy or something to that effect. Anyone have a specific instance of MentalYamadaChang posting about the same thing? Is it like word for word or just extremely similar subject matter? Anyway, RT is a tool anyway so hopefully ANN will toss him even if it can't be definitively shown that he is the same guy.

yeah, that was me. How do you go about searching for people who have made an account? I can't remember exactly what Yamada said, but RT's post mirrors that of Yamada: a hard on for anime dubs and VA's from California, disdain for Texas dubs, singling out Steven Foster like he's the only ADR director at Sentai.

again, perhaps I'm just being paranoid here and it is just a very bizarre coincidence

Are you sure ReverseTitan is the same person? Be careful, it might not be the same person but then again, you can use a different IP (as in using wi-fi hotspot to get pass the IP ban). But someone monitor ReverseTitan to make sure it's not the same person.
