    ...I was thinking of the CT Yanqui diary, which shows up on the Hidden Comments list. Still, it seems that, unless a number of Tip Jars are hidden, or a large number of nasty comments are hidden, it seems like someone has to tap on Markos' shoulder to bring on bojo. Since I have no idea how the algorithm is set up for autoban, I have no real idea how many HR's have to be made to trip it.

      a whole bunch of others blew a whole lot of donuts for nothing, too.

      I must have missed the other diary you're referring to.

      Yeah, it takes quite a few to trip autoban, which can be a blessing and a curse. Mostly the latter. ;)

      It takes somebody like MB, who, quite apparently, reads through diaries and comments, to be venturing about at the time, to get a manual ban quickly.

      Seems like he's been extra active in the comments lately, BTW.

        ...the site brass from having to play cop. If it's got a high threshold, maybe we should have more donuts available.

          moderation mechanisms may need some additional tweeking.
