Re: Online Psychos Continue to Harass and Spam

My standard has basically been that if a simple squelch solves the problem, then it's under your control and it's not something the admins need to take up. If a simple squelch doesn't do the trick because the other party is too persistent, that's when it really rises to harassment and we need to step in.
In this case, it sounds like babyshark is saying that /squelch is
working except that you have to keep doing it over and over. I know sometimes to join games or to host strongly you have to reconnect first, so that in fact one gaming session could entail half a dozen reconnects and half a dozen times you need to /squelch these people. Everyday, for a year.
If asking someone to /squelch every single time is
too burdensome, then we ought to side with the victim and not the abuser, and ban van until he stops his abusive behavior. I guess the question is, how hard is it exactly to squelch over and over? I'm not sure.
Also, is there any way to make it easier? Can @iL
get the server to remember your squelched users? Can @Lambchops
or another user write a script that auto-squelches a list of people every time you log on?
