Ok but for clarity sake, can you confirm who has the "Opti" package? That is, who can get banned and just make a new account and be fine?

Yeah. I'm assuming Bozorules ( I can't remember his previous name ) and Mudjin are on the list too?
You guys do realize that just because you think that someone is someone else A) doesn't make it real or B) doesn't mean that the mods know. People will waste a hundred posts complaining about someone in a thread and not spend one second telling the mods. People need to stop assuming that we know everything that is going on in here. We don't.
I've deleted about 80-100 of his accounts over the years. We can't ban his IP. He keeps making more accounts. WTF are we supposed to do?
Pretty much all of this...

Mudjin is banned. No idea who he was before. No idea who bozorules was before.
And for the people who try to hide it, I understand. Opti doesn't. It was known that he was PassTheRock for what, six months? He admited it and posted the same as when he was Opti/Taco. That he was GibbyGoesDeep was obvious from post 1. As far as we know he's still here. I understand what you guys do is unpaid and is important for making this board bareable, but if it looks like a schtick, walks like a schtick, talks like a schtick, it should be treated as such unless they can prove otherwise.
Not that Tanner is the most objective person on the planet, but he refered to Bozo as a poster I remember from a while ago (who he always called SpartyIrish) and he flipped out on Tannner for doing so, pretty much confirming Tanfan was right.
How many people pay attention to that stuff? Not once did anyone say "uh, mods? I think this guy is Opti". Just stop assuming.
The one complaint I have is the "we are gonna leave this thread up so people can downvote" strategy. Nobody cares about downvotes, especially the trolls that are starting the stupid threads.

People refer to Mudjin as "Roundhead" and have called him all sorts of other names, which he either changed or got banned and made new names. I just think if a lot of the people you guys want to leave forever... If you banned them quickly and made it a PIA for the to post here, they'd leave. Sure, Ross and Nucky will stick around, but some of these other guys aren't going to want to make 10 user names a week. They'd just go to another site.
His mom and address are well known....May I suggest sending him a package of Stella poo?
Mudjin is/was Donny Rotten or Roundhead. I think that was the name of the used car dealer.

If I can't prove it's them I don't tend to ban them.
Don't care about schticks. Can't stand how Dan or Sean post a random recruiting or post game article and repeatedly the same people are in that thread three posts in flaming the team, the coaches or the players. VIP articles no less! It's just not what I'm interested in paying for.

Again, I respect what you guys do and I'm not bashing you. Want to make this clear. But there were threads with 2-3 mods posting in it and everyone was refering to PassTheRock as Opti. In one of them I even quoted a mod and asked why they are letting Opti just make new user names and post. No response. Do you want PM's? I'm not trying to be a message board detective. I have no interest in moderating. It's not like there are dozens of these guys. There's like 6, and none of them are very clever. When they get banned, it's just a new user name and the same posting style.
So let's be fair here. You remember all the old board crap yet you have only been a member for 14 months. We've been here for 23 months. Who were you before?
People referring to Mudjin as Roundhead does not make it so. People also call every new user "Nucky". Most of the time they are wrong. No one is getting banned simply because a couple posters think that a poster used to be another poster. We can look at some IP history to try to trace them, but are not going to ban them because of hearsay. If they don't line up with a duplicate banned poster, then we give them rope to hang themselves.
The problem is that Roundhead aka Mudjin aka used car salesman ARE the same person. Sure there are times(more often than not it would appear) that a new user is not an old poster that people claim they are...But people are on here enough that it is somewhat easy after a while to easily notice a posting style and match it up with a banned user.
Posting style is not enough to perma-ban most people.
Miss the "report post" button from the previous board. I maybe only ever used it twice myself, and I was not the first in those two cases. Most of the others were probably in posts that I never saw because those posts were reported in timely fashion.
He didn't get banned because people think that he's roundhead. He got banned because he's an asshole.
What old board crap do I remember? I found tRCMB during the Izzo to Cleavland crisis. Stayed away after. Wound up in the hospital and found a stream for a football game while I was there (Beaumont didn't have BTN) and started lurking. After the Nebraska loss last year, I was so frustrated with the response on the board I signed up. I just tend to remember things I read I've read.
