This user https://stackoverflow.com/users/4677723/sissy-girl is the same user that was banned here a few days ago https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28950000/guys-hello-i-need-to-check-my-code-cause-i-dont-know-whats-wrong-can-anyone-h

If you visit the blog linked from their profile (http://gibberishstack.blogspot.com.br/search?updated-min=2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2016-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=8) you can see they are a serial SO troll.

They have answered a number of old questions in the last few minutes. All of which have been instantly upvoted. I suspect by the same user with a second account.

Not sure what they are up but maybe worth somebody with a ban hammer keeping an eye out. ๏_๏

    You should be flagging their content if someone is doing something inappropriate, not posting on meta. – Servy Mar 16 '15 at 20:02

    They haven't actually done anything flaggable yet since re-creating the account. I decided to post here after reading this post meta.stackexchange.com/a/66445/180262 where posting here was suggested. As far as I can see there isn't any other way of reporting something like this – Turnip Mar 16 '15 at 20:04

  • @uʍopǝpısdn You don't think that creating accounts to subvert a ban or voting fraud is "anything flaggable"? If you suspect either of those things it most certainly merits a flag. It's also something that should be handled in private between you and the mods, not out in public. – Servy Mar 16 '15 at 20:08
  • @Servy I think that the 'new version' of the member hadn't posted yet. – user273376 Mar 16 '15 at 20:09
  • They had posted but what they posted seemed legitimate. Ok @servy you are right. I think it would make sense though to have a "flag this user" link on the user account page too as this is what I wanted to do, rather than flag a specific post – Turnip Mar 16 '15 at 20:11
  • @SabreTooth If they hadn't then there wouldn't be any problems to flag. The problem is that, "They have answered a number of old questions in the last few minutes. All of which have been instantly upvoted. I suspect by the same user with a second account." So yes, the second account had been posting. – Servy Mar 16 '15 at 20:12

    @uʍopǝpısdn If they're subverting a suspension and committing voting fraud then those are things that merit reporting. You simply need to make it clear in your flag what you feel the problem is. – Servy Mar 16 '15 at 20:13
  • @Servy fair enough! (still waiting for my coffee to kick in) – user273376 Mar 16 '15 at 20:15

Yeah, it's a troll. They've been targeting me for the last few weeks with code snippets that draw dicks (which amazingly few people even noticed), suggested edits like this, and user accounts named Brad Larson that completely copy my profile. It's been moderately entertaining to destroy my own accounts.

It's also been a great opportunity to find inattentive reviewers to ban, I'll tell you that.

If you see other accounts like this, flag them and we'll feed them into the anti-troll system. That should hopefully block them after a while.

    LOL, that code snippet is just priceless! :D – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Mar 16 '15 at 21:54

    wow, can you believe someone accepted such a large suggested edit – Isaiah Mar 16 '15 at 22:42

    I noticed but the code snippet made me laugh. Looks like you've got a little fan club forming Brad. – Lankymart Mar 17 '15 at 12:28

    The endgame here is to someday trick you into deleting your own account, I just know it. – Bill the Lizard Mar 17 '15 at 13:15
  • Lul, they are still suggesting such edits, not on your posts though :D – nicael Apr 4 '15 at 17:05

    @nicael - And someone just earned themselves a review ban. – Brad Larson Apr 4 '15 at 22:37
