Abuse the Boards and You Will Be Suspended

A user Tuesday uploaded the same post to Falmouth Patch more than 25 times in a row, driving all other local board posts off our home page and dominating the Speak Out section for multiple pages. However, this state of affairs lasted for less than an hour.

This user has now been suspended from all Patch sites for spamming the community boards, and I have removed the extra posts (it took about 15 minutes, but the spammer will receive a separate email for each removal, which is some consolation).

Please respect your fellow community members and do not spam Patch boards. Thank you.

Thank you for moderating and taking swift action.

Thank you, Clare, I appreciate that.

Lousia - Happy New Year! Question - is there any 'blog set-up' process to selectively 'block' a particular individual from commenting on my Patch blog submissions?
