This guy keeps appearing, and we're not sure why.
He posts anywhere between 5 - 12 of the same sort of "answers":
Use native Win32 zip dll apis (used by IE)
Never use external DLLs on Windows !
Simply hook it (very classic, see Compuserve and MSDN)
Simply see the source code of Sleep (Kernel32 source, posted on Compuserve and Google Groups, Win32 api ng)
You absolutely don't need any plug-in (absurd !)
Simply use a standard Win32 COM hook, and that'all !
See and copy the classic and perfect MSDN sample from SDK.
if you have 10k rep on SO you can see these links to older deleted posts, same thing. I believe this is one of his "runs" from a while back.
How to hook external process with SetWindowsHookEx and WH_KEYBOARD
How do I decide whether to use ATL, MFC, Win32 or CLR for a new C++ project?
How to get hardware MAC address on Windows
Who is responsible for clearing up memory from image lists?
Disabling keys using windows hooks
How to clear MSIE/WinInet cache programatically?
How do you determine the last process to modify a file?
How to download a file with WinHTTP in C/C++?
How can I get the system drive letter?
The pattern is non-answers that point to vague "newsgroups" and "MSDN" and so forth. It's not horrible trolling, but it's clearly some kind of passive aggressive resistance to Stack Overflow that keeps recurring over a period of months.
Dealing with this is essentially a one-click operation on our end, so it's no real work per se. But it is strange. This is the most persistent (and odd) troll we've developed. I think I've deleted at least 6 instances of this user, and I'm sure Bill and Marc have deleted the same stuff several times.
I have not been able to cross reference his IPs reliably, so banning does not appear to be an option.
I saw his IP one time and it geolocates to France, which is consistent with some evidence from previous runs. Man this guy is persistent. Will IP ban if we can get some consistent ranges from him.
