    How does something like this

    http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...95&postcount=8

    happen? Can you squirrel a user without squirreling their posts? Can mere mortals attain these powers?

    And from a legal point of view, who is responsible for posts without an author, j ?


    I think that's what happens when you link directly to a post from a user who's on global ignore.

    i think that is more likely weird technical anomaly.

    He was never on global ignore under that username btw, that came later, after the marc37 incarnation was banned.

    ugh... srsly? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=216227

    If the powers that be decide this deserves to stay on SF, may I suggest that it is moved to DT at least

    I have a feeling that one may get self-policed....

    Jesus, that thread.

    It's quite the thing, isn't it? It's a piece of SF history. I'm pretty sure that's the thread from which one of the lines in my sig comes.

    yup. If SF dies tomorrow, and I look back on my rocking chair on the porch in 50 yrs time and think of this forum...two threads will come to mind.
