Why is vgv8 suspended till 03 Dec 2013, after just being suspended recently?
OK, let's go for some opinion, rather than an actual answer: I'm not a mod, wasn't part of any discussion regarding vgv8 or suspension recently (well, some moaning on the chat, but nothing more). So, below are just my 2¢.
The vgv8 user was first suspended on EL&U for a stream of off-topic and low-quality questions and answers, after the discussion had a discussion on the issue. Since he came back 8 days ago, some statistics on his recent questions and answers:
- 7 of his questions were closed (11 were kept open; that's 39% of off-topic questions)
- his answers gathered an average of –0.86 votes, which means he is more downvoted than upvoted (with some off-topic or wrong answers such as here and there gathering scores down to –5)
- his questions continue to be a mess, with many updates, many questions and rhethorical questions packed into one
- many of his comments are hardly understandable (with common themes such as he referring to himself as a “bot”, or “write-only”)
So, if I were to summarize why his behaviour annoys me, and why I think he should be banned for a long period:
- While his style may be acceptable on some forums, it is definitely off-topic for a Q&A site. The low quality of questions and answers discourages existing users, and might put off newcomers.
- He shows no sign of improving. In particular, he has not acknowledged the necessity to respect the topic and scope of the site. He has not participated in the discussion about the nuisance caused by his behaviour (no answer or comment from him on the meta discussion, though it has been repeatedly pointed out to him). There is also proof, from other sites of this network, that he has caused the same problems there, and not adapted his behaviour either.
Jasper, if you haven't already, you may like to read my answer to another question on meta here, which gives some more details.
(Full disclosure: I did actually encourage the mods to ban him again)
This question dated March 9 and responses would certainly be a contributing factor.
