Invisible posters

#1
I have noticed that on some threads that I cannot read all the comments. This happens when 1 or 2 particular posters are named as the most recent post maker. Any ideas as to how/why this happens?

I've noticed the same, Geordie_Blerk posts do not show up, but some people still quote him.

Five Alpha's comment has now vanished. WTF?

That was deleted by me. The COs aren’t keen on people circumventing the Troll Cloak (the site has it for a reason).

I haven’t had time to PM 5A yet explaining (am at work).

I kinda miss Geordie... hasn't he finished his time in the naughty corner yet?

Is it some kind of secret? Damned if I can see a reason for that. Can you point me to an explanation somewhere?

I didn't even know we were still using this. It was experiment from a few years ago and once in a while seems a good cure, but I haven't seen any requests for anything other than bans and O2 thief tags for ages. Still it's still a bloody good thing at times and from what I remember from GB's posts, well deserved.

No need. By the way, why is the troll control a 'secret' if it's in the preferences controls?

It's not a secret at all. It's just not much of a deterrent if everyone ignores it but as you say, it's easy enough to discover how to turn it off if you want to read someone's posts.

Then how come I can still read posts from muppets such as Bugsy, bev79 and "chubb"? Surely their posts should have been invisible? I turned the troll thingy off because it doesn't filter the right trolls.
