Syamsu for 2 hours
2 hours for still not paying attention to anything.
Message 27

This is in part for this current carelessness and as a warning that his general pattern of posting isn't suitable for the science threads either.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

Re: Watson75 - 4 day suspension extended to permanent
I've received a couple of snotty e-mails from Watson75, which included a request for permanent suspension (banning).

So be it.

Hoot Mon for 96 hours
Due to Message 65 he had previously been warned in Message 1 to avoid doing this very thing on pain of suspension. He has previously been suspended for this very thing as per Message 343 - hence the 4 days.

Edited by AdminModulous, : No reason given.

b0ilingfrog, 6 hours (originally was 24 hours)
The hovertext message:

1 day suspension to get his attention. I've posted two futile messages to him, trying to get him to improve his message formatting (the most recent being here). - Adminnemooseus

The above cited message:

Attn. b0ilingfrog - Important writing style pointer -

Please insert blank lines between your paragraph (give the "enter" key an extra press). This both makes your messages look better and makes them easier to read.

I've previously tried to bring this situations to your attention. If this here little alert and request doesn't get the job done, a little alert-suspension and request is the next step.

Adminnemooseus

This announces the "little alert-suspension and request".

Adminnemooseus

Added by edit: I've reduced the 24 hour suspension to 6 hours, and added that information to the suspension hovertext message.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : See above.

Larni, 24 hours
The suspension hovertext message:

1 day suspension. Pointless topic clutter. Other messages elsewhere in topic don't seem to have much more content. - Adminnemooseus

I'd post a warning message instead, but they just don't work.
