Version 3.5.4 Harrassing Member

A Mod on another site asked me if the posts of a harrassing member can be made invisable to all but that member. That way, if he posts, he'll think he's won, but no one will see his posts. Can that be done?

They ban him, he re-joins. They ban his IP, he switches IP's. He's on about his 20th registration now.

What advice can I give them? Would contacting his ISP do anything?

Ideas?

User Banning Options->Tachy Goes to Coventry

This option allows you to effectively add a user or users to every member's 'Ignore List'. However, users in this list can still see their own posts and threads..

I see it in my 3.7.4

If it's in the 3.5.4 version, it's exactly what he needs!

Thanks!

It also has a special meaning to those who know - but I don't.

"Tachy" is from the old greek word "takhu" and means something like: swift/fast/rapid/accelerated

(Although i am not sure if the use of tachy comes from the greek word in this context)

I thought the story was that Kier had a user on his board called "tachy" who really needing to be sent away to coventry for a while... they say necessity is the mother of invention.

That type of punishment had been done for a while by many of us via a sql prior to 3.x - you simply added the userid to everyone's ignore list except his own.
