When reviewing and even when I'm just looking for info, I eventually stumble on to a post that isn't only bad its mindbogglingly awful and out of morbid curiosity I check the user profile.
Not only is this post awful but the user habitually posts garbage.
Under the usual run of things with new-ish users the post bans kick in and they get the good old "We are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account." but with users who have been around a while it looks like a few highly upvoted old posts can more or less inoculate them from post bans.
Maybe I'm missing something... But is this really possible/intended?
For a little more context, these are often older accounts with literally hundreds of questions.
Is there anything that can be done about these cases?
- You can't go through and downvote - Serial vote reversal will kick in.
- You can't flag - Most moderators won't go through a few hundred questions.
I know someone will say "Just let it go, don't be a stalker" - that doesn't seem like a solution at all...
Perhaps some will say "If they're posting enough good content to offset the bad, what's the problem?" How many pages of bad does it take to be a problem?
I just put together a query that may shed some light on the issue.
This was my first attempt at building a Data Explorer Query, feel free to fork it and tweak it if needed.
