    Physicsforums.com members:

    An administrative action was taken this morning to deal with a persistent problem user who has been abusing our forum for at least several months, often severely violating our guidelines. This person has been using at least twelve different usernames and has been posting mostly unintelligible, pointless, vitriolic, profane, or otherwise troublesome material that has been requiring constant staff attention. This morning, after a period of discussion during which there were no objections, the most recent of this person's aliases were pruned and deleted. Included in this pruning were a number of threads that had participation from other members. Unfortunately, those posts were deleted along with the threads.

    The staff was not making any kind of judgement on the material posted by others in those threads, nor was the staff attempting to control anyone's behavior other than the problem poster. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our excellent membership, and will do our best to limit the impact of any further administrative actions on our members in good standing.

    - Warren

    I'm guessing, but I don't think the person's name is known. I noticed quite a lot of posts that looked like they were written by the same person, but the handles were all different. IIRC, the threads and posts that were deleted seemed to involve these handles.

    Whathappen' whilesI wasaway?

    My apology to all.......... but, would one (nice) intelligent person tell me what has been going on? I can assume, but, there are too many e-mails to read to get the full story...... so can it be lumped in a sum?
