Dagoth Ur, Mad God

I thought I should let you know that I have just reported the user known as Dagoth Ur, Mad God to his ISP, Telstra Bigpond Australia, for continual damage to this and other sites. I supplied them with a small but representative list of URLs that should allow them to judge for themselves just how their user has behaved. In particular, I included the pages where he made threats and used obscenities. I will let you know if I get any response. If I don't hear back in a week or so, I will try again.

I realise this is a big step, and as far as I know, a first for the site. I'm sure most of the people reading this will already be aware of what a nuisance DUMG has been but may be wondering why the normal blocking policy isn't being used. Quite simply, repeated warnings have had no effect and since he has now learned how to get a new IP address whenever he wants, blocking is impractical. Furthermore, even range blocks wouldn't work because Telstra own multiple IP ranges and he seems to be able to switch from one to the other. We'd probably end up blocking half of Australia if range blocks were employed.

In short, drastic times call for drastic measures. I'm sick and tired of seeing him vandalising this and other wikis and this might be the only way to stop it. –RpehTCE 08:19, 11 June 2008 (EDT)

I've heard nothing back so far but I've supplied them with the URLs of a couple more incidents that occurred recently on the Oblivion Mod Wiki. –RpehTCE 09:44, 19 June 2008 (EDT)
