    There seems to be a problem with one poster (JStone) continually spamming threads in the Middle East and Israel/Palestine sections.

    By spamming, I mean posting the same, often half-page long off-topic quotes and rants again and again and again.

    As far as I can tell, the point is to avoid other posters seeing pages on which he is proven wrong or in some way humiliated, and in some threads seems to be designed simply to make any kind of debate impossible.

    If this were happening only once in a while I wouldn't bother complaining, about right now it is extremely difficult to debate any Middle Eastern topic without having every page of the thread spammed with weird pictures, videos of crowd noise (?!), cartoons and endless C&Ps.

    I have reported him to the Moderators several times but to No avail.

    Personally, he follows me around like a dog in heat from thread to thread just to spam with off topic non sense and stop any debate.

    Surely he is violating USMB rules by constantly trolling and derailing threads?? :evil:

    That's usually my take things as well, but when you get one poster spamming threads so that 10 - 20 give up or log out, the easiest solution is just to ban the problem.

    that's so funny...

    jstone is simply the anti-pf[ucktard]/jos.

    but no complaint from you about the terrorist supporters who spam the board with terrorist propaganda.

    :cool:

    He has been banned several times for short periods.

    But needs to be permanently banned.

    He used to be even worse if you can believe that!!

    Posting 7-8-or 9 videos in one post!! Plus C&P

    Now because of him 2 or 3 vid's per post is the limit.

    But his are always off topic and the same one's over and over and over. :evil:

    Jillian I realize that you feel the need to stick up for JStone because he is a Hebe.

    But he does nothing but derail threads.

    The subject could be about building antique bird house's or what scientists say concerning Global warming.

    And JStone would start spamming the thread with videos and C&P about how many Israeli's won the Nobel Prize or Muslim honor killings.

    It's Not fair to other poster who want to engage in a serious debate.

    As for Jos; like him or hate him, at least he stays on topic and contributes to the thread. :cool:
