Someone is spamming a dead thread of mine with really horrendous comments. I know Help Desk doesn't handle moderating, but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks!

    Looks like another one of those trolls just written about here:

    Lowercasename (or group of letters) followed by a numeric sequence.

    SJF: in the past, elfling has advised me as such:

    Community from the contact us link is a slightly better place to go. Helpdesk can exile spam and super-obvious situations.

    You are right about heinous.

    elfling could you preemptively ban or suspend this user, please?

    A quick peek at comment titles is quite convincing and I do not have enough stomach to read them all but this one is obviously not forwarding any mission at teh GOS:

    It may also be a good idea to mark this private. Most of that crud is deserving of deletion. No point in letting TUs see that kind of stuff either.

    Too late to keep private. This may become an instance of the instadonutban. Long rumored, rarely proven.

    Autoban nailed him. Thanks y'all. He's not part of the bot invasion, though, just a garden variety (expletive deleted) troll.

    Whenever reporting a problem user, please include a link to a specific comment as part of your inquiry. It makes it much faster and easier for us to deal with.
