This is a troll heaven and there is no good reason for using a shared account from bugmenot on Stack Overflow or any other SE site.

Blocking a site can be requested on http://www.bugmenot.com/report.php - however, it needs to be done by a SE staff member/developer as they require you to create a file with a certain name to prove that you actually own the site.

This is a troll heaven And Stack Overflow isn't??? –  Yannis Jun 26 '12 at 13:22
    
@YannisRizos Not to this extent, no. #AntiJokeChicken ;) –  Anna Lear Jun 26 '12 at 13:25

Having all the trolls use the same account that can be easily suspended, instead of each one using an unregistered account sounds pretty convenient to me ;-) –  Mad Scientist Jun 26 '12 at 13:32
    
Do not forget bugmenot.com/view/serverfault.com either. –  Martijn Pieters Jun 26 '12 at 13:49

@MadScientist I'm a bit torn on this. There's at least one account I know of that actually got 200-something reputation before getting signed into by a troll. So in theory one of these accounts could gain privileges we don't want to just let anyone use. (Or a higher rep user could share out their login info for whatever reason, which would be even worse.) Sure, anyone can potentially share their login at any time, but why make it easy? :) –  Anna Lear Jun 26 '12 at 13:54

@AnnaLear My comment wasn't meant entirely serious. Having an account with actual privileges openly available for everyone is very problematic. Another reason why I would be a great fan of a "rollback all user actions since ..." tool for mods. –  Mad Scientist Jun 26 '12 at 13:58
    
Yes, BMN is still active (and actually incredibly useful for crappy register-to-read forums/sites). –  ThiefMaster Jun 26 '12 at 21:22

So that request form has been broken for a long time, but they (recently?) rolled out a new one: http://bugmenot.com/removal.php

Since that doesn't require any fancy footwork server-side, I went ahead and submitted SO, SU, SF and SE along with explanations for why the corresponding BMN pages are currently filled with unusable accounts...

These have now all been delisted.
