My guess is that the mods got tired of their and pandas inability to quit each other. Both shoothoops and panda haven't posted since January

You're an observant one!  Yeah.  They had a tiff, started reporting each other.  We told them to ignore each other, they wouldn't.  Then they both started PMing demanding we do something about the other.  I told them (again) they needed to resolve it themselves, or ignore each other - and that further PM complaints would result in a banning for both.  To nobodies surprise, they both subsequently sent me PMs insisting the problem was the other person.

I've often said, we expect you all to self moderate.  If you can't, we will.  Mods don' t have time to deal with everyone's personal issues.

IP address?

Also yes.  Same IP, both accounts created the day after banning.  Very Chicos like.

Still can't believe we pay so much in annual fees for this site and people still do this.

I took a stray bullet ban a couple weeks ago.  I won't dox who it was that got banned, but after the (I think) St. John's game I got a message saying I was banned with no expiration.  The next day, using my laptop instead of computer, I was back in.  Had to clear my Chrome browser of MUScoop on my phone to get it working on my phone again.

Then it happened again a week later, and I realized it was happening at the same coffee shop.

I have no idea how IP addresses work or anything, but I PMed a mod and they let me know it was a liberal IP ban for a different poster.  Not sure if that means the greatness of that poster had been to the same coffee shop in Columbia, MO or not, but if so, I hope to one day run into that person.  And maybe he or she will be out of Scoop jail if they're in that spot.

The funny thing is, I saw Sandstones first post and immediately knew it was shoothoops. Then i questioned it when I read thestands first post and thought that was shoothoops. I can just never imagine having two accounts forb the same site

If someone blocks you do they not see any of your posts AND you can’t see any of theirs?

I’ve never done it.

I don’t remember any shoothoops posts and I’m wondering if it’s maybe because I was blocked, or maybe I’ve just been subconsciously blocking them out.

Can the moderators get one of those things like Uber where other users rate you and you get to see your star rating?
That would be tight.

That was a bit different.  I don't generally use IP bans these days (for reasons in a moment) - but it can be a good indication of when someone is *likely* the same person because they post from the same exact IP address frequently and no other users use that IP.

In your case, it was a block of 255 IPs that got banned (by a wildcard -- "*") that happened to correlate to those owned by AT&T.  In fact, I know several other people must have seen your same message before it was fixed.  This is where IP gets fuzzy - especially with mobile phones.  You might access from 20 different IP addresses every day depending on when you access with your cell phone and where.  Based on an AT&T block - it's highly doubtful that poster was in the same location.  Could have been virtually anywhere in the US, but your coffee shop must use AT&T internet of some sort :)

We actually do have that ability, but never enable it.  Imagine all the smite I would get, lol.

No, if someone blocked (Ignored) you, you would still see their posts unless you also blocked them.

This is a great example!  Very unlikely you are willie.  However, you use a TON of IPs, and based on that the software does correlate you with a bunch of other users (I don't think you're them either).

Iirc they were getting into it in the tennis thread on the Superbar. Don't think the posts got deleted if you really want to go back and look what was said, just a whole lot of personal attacks between the two with the occasional post by someone else asking to get the thread back on topic.

This would be great.
