    problem IP was 124.169.180.150 , now banned. We can’t remove limits because it’s pretty trivial to have 5 accounts nuke everything on the site. Sorry.

        Thanks for the ban. I understand it's a difficult balance.

        To add to this point, someone is voting up the "2pac" trash. Reasonable people might make a guess at who is doing it after the little fooforah that preceded it, but I name no names.

        Yeah. *Something*!

        Or install some kind of auto-moderator that cuts off IPs flaged for more than 2 offensive votes in a day pending human moderation. Or something...
