Hi, my name is dick head. Why am i annoying?
Really? from ME?
Think he may have earned a ban. There's no option to PM him in his profile.
He may have disabled private messaging in his user profile. I checked mine, and the option to enable PMs is checked.
EDIT: I verified that if you uncheck that option, your profile no longer shows the ability to PM.
Good. IMO, he didn't quite cross the line into bannable material until a couple of his last posts. That certainly posed a problem for the moderators.
This thread is HILARIOUS. I don't know about other TCF-ers, but I speak the truth; when a TiVo CS clearly disseminates wrong information, I call them on it. When they do a good job, I also state that. When the product doesn't do what it's billed to do, I call them on it. When a feature is clearly a FAIL, I call them on it. When it equals or surpasses expectations, I commend them on that. It's simple.
The same with the IP addresses. You can typically get another one since they are typically dynamic for residential.
*shrug* I'm actually surprised at how long I wind up with the same IP at home, this one has been renewing itself for over a year. Actually I do know, it's just the way DHCP works, but it's still more stable than I'd expect.
And you can do a multi-IP ban in most forum software, I'd had to ban a few on other boards.
I dunno, but I'm sick of page after page after page of people feeding the troll. Even if he hasn't been banned, just ignore him and he will go away.
Sometimes we're so focused on other things here (like helping people) that we forget the basics. If someone outrages you once respond with a considerate and thoughtful post. When you see it happening on multiple threads across multiple forums just walk away or click the Ignore button.
WOW. I was scanning this thread, and I didn't even notice that. This is pretty funny.
Well it's the way DHCP works unless you configure it otherwise. Some ISPs seem to have deliberately configured their DHCP to change your IP address each time the lease expires; probably to discourage people from running servers.
I don't keep track any more, but we used to have the same one for years at a time.
