Anyone who has been on the Froome or Contador thread in the PRR section recently would have noticed a new member called 'telencefalus' who has been trolling the treads, especially Froome's. 'Tele' has 84 posts and only joined the forum yesterday.
I don't know if s/he is just another / older member who has created a new account in order to troll or genuinely a new CN'er, but either way it is becoming increasingly frustrating as the conversation has become ridiculous and s/he is inundating the Froome thread with completely nonsensical and 'trolly' comments.
As of the time of writing, 7 of the last 8 comments on the Froome thread have been written by 'Tele,' and most are objectively ridiculous posts.

We're aware of the poster you're referring to and we'll be watching them closely.

As you said, they've posted 84 comments in 24 hours so we need time to read through them and figure out what we may or may not do.

Cheers :)

I've posted well over 100 posts in a day during busy Tour race threads and the aftermath of weird stages. Maybe even closer to 150.

I think Hitch got over 300 one day during the Tour of 2011.

I don't care if somebody posts what. But his style is annoying. And definitely when he posts 5 in a row, like he is chatting. Either combine what you want to say in 1, longer, well thought out post, or don't post at all. He seems to literally post what he thinks at that minute.

Or... if you think of something more later on, and no new posts have been made in the thread in question, just edit your previous post.

No idea if he's a troll, but certainly annoying, maybe he's just over-excited or something.

Maybe the mods could just set him up his own private forum. It won't be that much different given he's talking to himself most of the time...

Looking forward to the "Well done for hitting 10,000 posts" thread he get, will probably be a week on Tuesday....

Next week? I think coming sunday already, when he posts 1.000 posts alone in the stage 21 topic about the great win by Trentin.

Agreed.

As long as he's posting within forum rules he should be given the leeway to post comments.

She/He might be annoying at the moment but in one post they did suggest that Froome might blow himself which is pretty damn funny :lol:

Agreed, but you should not be discussing an active forum member (named) who has not breached any forum rules with other forum members who simply find his/her posts annoying. Is that not against forum rules?

Yeah, you're right.

This isn't even the correct thread to post a complaint in so if anyone has an issue with a member that hasn't broken any forum rules then you'll just have to deal with it.

TIA :)

Well maybe the moderators should contact this new member to teach them some basic forum etiquette instead of waiting to see if they break any rules.
