[soapbox tone = "pomp, ceremony, self-importance"]
For the past few weeks, I've been taking advantage of my break time to read through the archives--starting back in 1989, of course. It has been a disheartening experience, unfortunately, as I see the vast amount of time and effort that has gone into addressing one specific problem and, particularly, as I see all of that time and effort going to waste. Tragic, really.
Fact is, once a person has commented on an online venue, one can only assume that person will move on and not return "to the scene of the crime," as it were. I believe, therefore, that all efforts in letting a certain individual know how the community at large feels regarding his presence have been ineffective. One can only imagine that this would be the best possible use of a time machine: to go back and post before the offending poster so that he or she knows that their comments are unnecessary and, indeed, unwelcome.
I now seek to address this problem.
