PHT housekeeping: Commenter blocking

Jan 2, 2013, 11:07 AM EDT

Many of you will be pleased to know that a certain commenter has been banned, as he was becoming too much of a distraction below.

Banning commenters isn’t something we like to do. We never do it because somebody criticizes what we write. We only do it if somebody starts ruining it for everyone else or if somebody becomes abusive. We also sacrifice one commenter each year to the volcano god.

If you’re curious, the way we ban people is by blocking their username, email address and IP address. The reason some commenters re-appear with different usernames is they create new emails and use applications that change their IP addresses. It’s pretty pathetic that they do this, but some people have sad lives. All we can do is keep banning them, which is as annoying for us as it sounds.

If you’d like to contact PHT, we’ve set up an email address at prohockeytalkpht (at) yahoo.com.

The comments section has grown a lot in the last year and we’re happy to have so many people adding to the site. Hopefully this lockout will be over soon and everyone can get back to debating Tim Thomas’s politics.
