    It's like a game, kind of tossing it in our faces.

    If he is, indeed, innocent, it's regretful.

    The shenanigans with this "noyd" thing, has become far worse since.
    I'm getting these homo-erotic pm's, bizarre friend requests, etc.
    It's becoming the focal point on here, which is sad, because it's not even a clever/interesting troll.
    Turning on one another, pointing fingers and making unsubstantiated allegations, is exactly what the troll wants, so please resist the urge.

    The problem is clearly not just contained to this site. It's part of a wider issue on Van Halen related websites, forums and comment sections.

    I naturally have my suspicions also, that another site may be harboring this troll, but again with out enough substantiation at this point, I am not prepared to make a specific accusation.

    I check in when I can.

    If you find such problems, the best thing to do is report the post. It sends out an email to all the mods.
    Rather than turn on the mods, who have so far banned 11 troll aliases, please assist by alerting us as described above.

    I'm sure with every comment like JD's this troll is recording another result.

    The MEZRO account appears to be receiving most of the flack, and when it doesn't post for a few days, the troll reverts to sending out random hate messages to other members and forums. Sometimes just one or two. However the subject matter is still MEZRO in the messages.

    But the longer MEZRO is away, the more of a stink this troll creates. Last Sunday was a prime example.

    So you see, no MEZRO = hello sh*tstorm.

    This troll has multiple accounts and I did warn you last week of one that you welcomed in the Fan Introduction forum, so if you see anything suspicious let us know.
    I know, I just seems that if the Mezro account disappeared the shitstorm would have to subside. The messages always mention Mezro specifically.

    Yes, you did warn me. It really sucks that the only new members we get now a days are trolls.

    The trolls pattern on other websites, including youtube, indicates that once a member left he would simply move on to harassing another member.

    And then we loose someone else, and so on, just like the other sites.

    Quick fixes, such as banning his aliases, are not working in the longer term. We are looking for a solution to the whole problem and not just a quick fix.

    I'm still not convinced.

    We need more mods, we need more people keeping an eye on shenanigans.
    It's become a "free for all," with the inmates running the asylum.

    If i'm wrong about this, i regret pointing fingers.
    But my gut tells me otherwise.

    If it gets really that damn bad, I'll volunteer some of my time to delete the trolls.
    Ready, Eddie!

    You & Nick, both, would make excellent mods.
    And you're both visible, unlike Mallon who became a mod, & promptly vanished.

    Freak needs to look at the folks that have stuck it out, through the lean times:
    You, Nick, jack, even 1234.

    I would have become a mod a year or two ago, but I don't think I'd be attentive enough now.
    Then again, it's winter now and I don't have much to do...

    I still say UG should be mod.
