Who is Tachy and why he goes coventry ?

I'm not a native english speaker and can't understand who is Tachy and why he goes coventry ?
This setting allows you to set certain users as being globally ignored. Their posts etc. are not seen by any users except themselves. This gives them the illusion that they are still functioning members of the forum when in reality nobody is seeing their posts. Enter a list of userids separated by spaces.

No-one knows the exact reason. The dev who made the feature says it's personal

Sending someone to Coventry is just an English phrase that means you are ignoring someone.

I understood that Tachy was an actual forum user somewhere that needed to be ignored ........

Coventry is the location of the tower of infinite sorrow at the edge of the enchanted wood where Johnson Package went to rescue the gay monkey in a basket.

Spot on

Tachy - can also mean when something is rubbish, cheap looking, naff. But I love the explanation that Tachy was a member that needed to be ignored.
