Moderator note: Magical Realist has been warned for trolling. Due to accumulated warning points, MR will be taking an extended break from sciforums once again. --- It was unwise of MR to double down on the same offence that got him a one week ban last time around, by posting his post #9333, above, followed by #9338. That post demonstrates no understanding on his part about why he was warned last time, despite my careful explanation to him in private messaging and despite a conversation we had about that there. Instead, he chose to come back and straight away claim that he was not trolling. It also demonstrates no repetence on his part and no desire to change his behaviour. This, however, is not why he finds himself banned again. This time around, MR falsely accused DaveC of losing an argument and then "crying troll" because he lost the argument. His aim was clearly to try to provoke an angry reaction from DaveC, and to lie to other readers about DaveC and to make false claims about said "argument" that he falsely claims that DaveC lost. Both of these acts constitute trolling, as well as breaching our site posting guidelines relating to knowingly telling lies. It is monumentally stupid for him to claim that he was banned for "no reason" when the reason is posted clear as day in this thread and was discussed with him at some length in private messaging. The whole "no reason" thing is just one more lie, knowingly told. So, we might see more of MR next year. Perhaps there is a new year's resolution he could consider adding to his list.
