Hey, Z S/Karl Malone here.

So weird thing: I can post with this user account from home, and using Zing (as I am right now). But I can't post using my work computer. It says "you have been barred". Anyone know why, and is there a way to unbar me?

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 15:33 (ten years ago) link

Didn't you request a self-ban a little while ago? I think you need to contact a mod.

(Unless I have missed part of a conversation that already covers this, in which case, ignore me.)

Am I right in thinking you have another alias that's banned? There's certainly another user banned under your IP range.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 15:38 (ten years ago) link

Ah yeah I see you requested a self-ban like a fortnight ago.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 15:41 (ten years ago) link

Yep, I made it almost 2 weeks! it's my Z S alias that was self-banned, but I didn't realize it was banning the IP, not the account itself. So if there is a way to unblock it I'd be grateful!

t, b; karl malone, zs

lag∞n, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 16:29 (ten years ago) link

Okay I've unbanned the IP but not the ZS account, is that right? Or should I just revoke the lot?

This is why I don't like doing self-requested bans, btw.

looks like it worked - i was just able to post from my work computer. thanks for your help matt!

If you really don't have the self-control to stop posting, can't you just scramble your password so you can't login? Really not down with "please ban me" requests.

Ok, how would I do that? Sorry about the thing you're not down with - I have seen a bunch of decent people use that avenue.

Just change your password to a random jumble of letters that you won't remember?

I lasted less than a month.

the problem w self bans is you can still read ilx

lag∞n, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 16:50 (ten years ago) link

OTM, if ILX addiction is such a problem that you can't restrain yourself then a ban isn't going to help. There's prominent poster who requested a self-ban and lasted THREE DAYS before asking to be unbanned, which is just stupid.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 16:53 (ten years ago) link

None of this is a slam on ZS who I have always liked as a poster.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 16:55 (ten years ago) link

Yeah z s is cool, feel like everybody who requests a self-ban should be permabanned tho

imago hard or go haim (wins), Wednesday, 4 December 2013 16:56 (ten years ago) link

hahaha, no it's fair, it's fair. i thought that perhaps a self-ban would work because i would lose interest by not being able to actually interact with people. and i did make a fair effort to not open it in the first place. but then things kept happening in the world and i was too curious about what smartass things were being said on ILX about the things happening in the world, and...things snowballed.

but i appreciate the help, and i can see how these things would be annoying for a mod.

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 17:01 (ten years ago) link

Hey mods I need to take a quick break from ILX - can I get a self-ban?

Damn, looks like this request came in after the new rules went into effect - we're losing one of our best but little can be done. Godspeed in your new life, wins

i had no idea zs was karl malone, this explains a lot

xp It's cool they completely ignored my request, the cunts

It's three weird username all over again imo

Hi I would like to test the limits of mod indulgence w/ an even more ridiculous request: could a v kind mod put some line breaks in this big post > Visiting Ethiopia < to sort out the formatting? & I suppose delete the following message, if so.

ogmor, Tuesday, 10 December 2013 07:43 (ten years ago) link

mine is "ban waterface"

srsly, I haven't got time for the fucking pain
