The saga continues...
The user who's been harassing me for free requests has only escalated his behavior. Every time I block him, he contacts me from a new account. Here are his aliases thus far: , , , , , , , , , and . I know for a fact that he's harassed other artists as well. I've reported him for block evasion, but my support ticket hasn't been reviewed yet.
I gave this guy a shout in his brannd account, informing him that his behavior isn't getting him anywhere and he's earning our combined hostility. I closed by telling him, "Stop being a dickweed and take the hint." He seemed unconvinced of any of it.
By all means, go to brannd's profile. Tell him whether my shout was nonsense or not.
(Please avoid flaming him, and proofread your comments. Give him no excuse to think we're just over-emotional 'mean' people.)
Put that account name under this reply, so he can't hide using it.
As far as block-evading trolls go, this guy seems almost mild-mannered. But he is still a block-evading troll, and will require coordinated effort to thwart permanently.
I did that once, what Darianblood suggested. Some frat boy wanted me to sell him beer after 3:00Am, and I said that I would if he could answer some Harry Potter trivia questions.
HE DID NOT EXCEED EXPECTATIONS.
Perhaps a change of tactic is in order? Tell him you'll give him his request if he performs various impossible (but not dangerous or illegal) tasks and sends you photographic proof.
Either that or copy/paste some massively overlong and insane conspiracy theories in answer to his notes?
When blocking doesn't work I find being as annoying as possible back can be effective and is often fun too
What a total dweeb! I know I'd never do such a thing, especially to you, Mara... I mean, I'd like requests from you, but one, I can't use real money for them, and two, I wouldn't keep asking like this freakazoid... He sounds like a real creep to me! He needs to (pmf... ) f*** off!! No one does this to you and gets away with it, at least imo! Okay, ranting over now...
