Craziest Thing Someone's Done After Being Banned?

What's the craziest thing someone's done after being banned from your site?

I just checked my Facebook Fan page which is connected to my ping.fm account. Whenever I post a site update in ping.fm it goes to several different blogs and sites like twitter and facebook. I do that for SEO. Anyway, I checked my Facebook Fan Page for the first time in ages and lo and behold, what do I see? Over 300 comments spread across 3 aliases by one guy, arguing with another guy who also has several different aliases. Both of them, who are enemies of each other, were banned a couple months ago. What do they do after being banned? Since they can't fight each other on my site anymore they are doing it on my Facebook Fan Page.

This is the most pathetic crap I've ever witnessed from banned members ever. Not only do they fight amongst themselves, they type out novels to me talking trash. I was only able to delete several posts tonight. It might take me a week. I banned some of the most annoying aliases on the page. I don't know what to say man. I'm surprised anyone could find the time and effort to do all that. It's annoying and hilarious at the same time.

After I revoked the permissions of a moderator she contacted her moderator best friend and instructed her to delete as much content as possible. This happened while I was offline, and luckily an other moderator noticed that strange behavior and banned this second moderator. A lot of content got deleted, but fortunately we could rebuild some of that deleted content with the helping hands of the forum users.

And thats why you never give your mods the ability to hard delete items ;)

One of my members who got banned tried to get revenge by turning me in to the tax autorities, since I'm financing the site based on donations. He obviously didn't get anywhere with that, this was over a year ago.

Oh.... I bet I win this one hands down....... The following is from several users, some of them from the same user (more than once).

*deep breath*

  • Filled my inbox with rude comments, threats, and other junk. It was a Gmail account (2GB worth. Do the math on how much e-mail that is).
  • Filled my inbox with gay porn (again, Gmail account)
  • Found my number, called my house at 2 - 3 AM (I have call screening & they screamed, emergency so I took the call not knowing who it was & 1/2 a sleep, only to find out it was the guy I banned, who wanted to give me a piece of his mind)
  • Threats to sue me (claiming I had no right to ban them)
  • Threats to sue me (claiming I was bias and allowed others members to troll, causing emotional abuse)
  • Called my house at 2 - 3 am (demanding I delete their account & all proof of them being a member. I hung up)
  • Re-joined 53x (actual count) to troll another member
  • Attempted to hack my site
  • Posted junk on my Facebook and Google+ account.
  • Started up their own forum, re-joined, and privately convinced other member to join their site, claiming my policies were illegal & so was my site (they're not).
  • Called my house at 2 - 3 am, threatening to kill me (such a wonderful person, no?)
  • Filled my e-mail (2gb gmail account) with empty e-mails (no content).
  • User was an Admin on another site, who I helped, and was upset that I later merged a competing (but formally associated) site with my own. Wrongfully convinced others that I had stolen content. (You mad?)
  • Cracked my password, trolled my members "as me", and made an announcement that the site was closing and referred everyone else where (while I was on vacation)
  • Attempted to fake DMCA notices to my host (thank god my host, their upstream provider, ect... Could care less)
  • Posted my full name, address, and phone number on another site
  • Threaten to kill and harm my members & me, but claimed they would also sue me
  • Tried to convince other members (privately) that every other member was my AE (alter ego) and that there was no point in being a member on my site, since all you ever do is talk to me (figure that one out?)
Got drama?

Luckily I didn't own / manage / admin the forum but just some of the things that happened...
Multiple members left and started their own competing forums, and each of them would routinely used the PM system to lure other members away.
One moderator decided he would delete all of his postings and all related threads, i.e. 13000+ messages
Lawsuit filed against the owner for libel. Same person was at the time trying to buy the website.
Deleted the entire forum , the forum was on an old version that hadn't been patched.
Repeatedly reported the site has hosting malware.


Some people have way too much time on their hands. :)

I banned one guy for a few months and he went across a ton of PS3 mutliplayer blogs and spammed that my website is a cheater's haven lol. Took me 2 months to get most of it removed (but it actually brought me a lot of traffic). I banned another guy and he got my mailing address and sent me a death threat I did not hesitate to report him to authorities.

LOL but 300 comments? I can see a few of my own trouble makers (err.. i mean members) doing something like that.

Gees after the first death threat, I would have called in law enforcement.


Someone tried to send me a flaming bag of poo, but they got as far as my post office box.
