You're about a week away from being zapped. Your 375 rejected posts from this account alone, plus the several hundred on your original account which you stopped using when you realised your spittle-flecked bile was being constantly rejected, should have warned you that the above angry drivel is not acceptable here on El Reg.
This is the second public warning I've given you. Do not labour under the illusion that clicking "Anonymous Coward" makes you invisible to the moderators. You're not. Next time there won't be a friendly public warning - that'll be it.
Hugs and kisses
Re: In a similar vein....
If you use the same email/password combo for El Reg comments as you do for something important (say, oh I dunno, your ISP login creds...), then you probably deserve the inevitable consequences.

Re: Re: When are posts moderated?
The comment moderation system is mostly a straight filter (certain naughty words etc). When it chooses to filter stuff, that gets bounced up to a human moderator for review - or auto-rejected, depending on certain factors it's probably not wise for me to reveal. Comment modding isn't our primary task so this can take a while for us to turn around.
There are some persistently abusive/legally problematic/won't use the corrections link commentards. These people are put into manual pre-moderation, where every single one of their comments has to pass manual review before being accepted.
Certain articles are also subject to manual pre-moderation. Tends to be in the case of writers or subjects which attract a lot of abusive comments. You want to visit our house and have a conversation, fine, but don't come in here and mug us off in front of our pals.
Occasionally there are stories about legal proceedings where the risk to us is too great to allow comments so we just switch them off altogether.
Re: Re: Blinkered Bernie Re: BlueGreenLoser ObnoxiousLiar Boring Bernie Pseudointelligence Coward
It is libellous to falsely accuse another of libel. On which note I'm going to retire into my private retrocausality.
Re: Mod hat on
You know, I might just ferret about in the cupboard and see if we've got a spare knocking about. Though I'm not sure how our techies would like being DoS'd by GCHQ every day...

As the more astute of you will see, posts have been deleted from this thread. Some of you have also earned yourself lengthy trips to the pre-moderation naughty step.
Keep it reasonably civil and on-topic. If you just want to shout naughty words at each other get yourselves an IRC channel.
Re: Re: If they were serious about punishment
The Norwegians believe in rehabiliation, to the point where Breivik's likely to be released in 15 years' time.
Re: Pink Slips?
The Reg is an international publication, so sometimes we do have to stoop to the Yanks' level... next time we'll call it a P45, just for you.
Re: Re: BlueGreenLoser Re: And more of those non-EXISTANT jihadis.....
No, you're on premoderation because you broke the forum rules.
I'd have rejected the above post but I want to make it clear what is and isn't acceptable in our comment threads. The above mindless abuse is not. Kindly moderate your tone, or I shall do it for you.
Well done, commentard. You've just earned yourself a trip to the pre-moderation naughty step courtesy of me.
If you have difficulty understanding why this has happened to you, please refer to your seven identical rejected posts in conjunction with section 4 of the Reg Comments Guidelines.
Have a nice day.
Re: deary, deary me
OK: it's all of them. Happy now?
Re: Re: Starting Grid
I'm convinced our auto-modding system has a sense of humour and lets stuff like that through for the sheer insanity of it.
4) pretty much covers covers El Reg. With the advantage that I can write snarky responses about breakdancing on tramps every once in a while, as well as splattering the word "Glasshole" across Google and occasionally pissing off various script kiddies with my scintillating headlines.
Re: Re: Register needs an alternative funding model and #MDFC
Yes, we all take bribes/worship St Maggie/venerate the ground that the Holy Saviour Murdoch walks upon here at El Reg. We also moonlight at the Copenhagen Zoo murdering giraffes and feeding them to the lions. I also personally went out of my way to grind my feet into the faces of the needy as I breakdanced my way to work across the malnourished stomachs of local tramps.
Re: Re: what a silly chap
"TFL FTL" has an entirely different (and more accurate) meaning in my mind...
Re: Troll-dee-dee, troll-dee-dah
Nicely spotted, ta. Unfortunately it's a reasonably regular commentard, so instead of zapping them outright I've put them on the manual moderate naughty step. Means the anonymous trolling won't get through, at least.

Get a room you two.
Re: El Reg 28/01 editorial objectives
I let this through the net, but only because it made oi larf.
Re: Champion for small business???
We saw you coming and built our entire comments system purely to annoy you.
How to use the "report abuse" function
El Reg forums has a "report abuse" link displayed on each comment. This is provided for you to flag spam and the like up to the forum moderators. We then review and deal with reported comments accordingly.
As per The Register's Comments Guidelines, section 14:
Do use the 'report comment' button – we take note of each one and often withdraw comments after complaints, and we're grateful for your assistance as spam and other unwelcome things do sometimes slip through – but don't abuse it. A differing opinion does not make reasonable grounds for reporting a comment. You may end up getting flagged if you continually file unwarranted reports.
Many comments reported to us over the last few weeks appear to be because commentards are losing arguments and misusing the "report abuse" button in the hope that views they don't agree with will be removed.
This will not happen.
Persistent abuse of the "report comment" function will result in your account(s) being flagged, which means everything you post will be manually pre-moderated, and thus take a long while to appear.
If you have any questions about this, please feel free to re-read the comments guidelines at the link above.

Indeedie. Take the headline and subhead together - Ginni Rometti is IBM's CEO.

Re: C/o Titling Department
Well, bugger. Wish I'd thought of that now :(
Re: How come...
That's a rather good idea. Will ping this to our tech team, cheers.
Various ideas are floating around Vulture Central at the moment to do with pagination - this sounds like an option we might take a look at.
Re: Re: A couple more suggestions
Under UK copyright law, the person commissioning(i.e. paying for) the photo owns the copyright - the specific example most of the textbooks give is your one of family portraits.
Re: Re: Something's fishy here
The system's a bit temperamental. Sometimes we're officially recognised, sometimes not. Happens to me too.
Tell us, do you know the difference between Australia and Antarctica?

I note you post anonymously when using this language. Sitting here at El Reg HQ, I can see who you are - and also know about your other account which you use when we filter out your bizarre ramblings from this one, anon or not. Kindly cease and desist from splattering the site in profanities.

Thanks to all who pointed out what the aircraft actually are in the pics - have updated the image captions accordingly.

Hot-headed accusation made, response in similar tone made. Leave it here immediately, gentlemen, or I shall break out El Reg's patent ton of bricks.
Point of order - very few journalists working anywhere actually write their own headlines, subheads or captions. That's the preserve of the ancient and noble order known as sub-editors.
"Commentards, at the target to your front, BURSTS - RAPID - RAPID..."
Stop spam-reporting Trevor just because you disagree with him. Prolific offenders will find themselves on the naughty step.
Re: Re: I had to Google how to find the Control Panel...
Use your middle finger, duh.

N64 analogue frequency
Just hooked up my old N64 to my digital tellybox. For the benefit of anyone else trying to tune it in, the 64 "broadcasts" on 591MHz.
Problem is, the sound is just white noise. I've done the time-honoured thing of pulling and blowing on all the cables and that hasn't fixed it. Last time I used this RF cable a year ago it worked fine, and it's been stored coiled - not knotted.
Come to the pub and enjoy a beverage with us. If you can't work out where and when Vulture Central enjoy a bevvy, odds are you're possibly not suited to El Reg for a variety of reasons.
Re: Reinvented cuckoo clock
It almost definitely is, but without knowing for sure it's a bit presumptuous for us to say so.
Re: Re: Guilt by Coincidence
Tis true. Cressida Dick is now a Commander (deputy chief constable equivalent) in the Met. She was in charge of de Menezes' manslaughter.
I still find it incredible that no armed policeman has ever been brought to trial after killing someone on duty.
Re: What is the solution?
There's a sideways thought - reset your password every single time you use a service, and use one of those password-generating sites to come up with a dictionary-proof password each time.
Bit cumbersome, mind.
For make glorious Revolutionary courts, comrade!
I've only let this comment through the net to point out that we're reporting the study. Readers are smart enough to find for themselves who commissioned the study - as you've just done. So congrats, have a cigar.

If we're playing commentard rank poker, I'll stick with my little red vulture. ;-)
Re: Re: Faking accounting,evading taxes..more marketing bull.
Or to the notice of your local friendly mod, who shitcans his libellous tinfoil hattery.
Re: Don't understand
Tends to help if you don't insult El Reg when commenting. You're a guest in our house, remember - we reserve the right to hoik you out if you upset us.
Re: Are you guys rush fans?
Aye. I am anyway, dunno about the rest of Vulture Central. 2112 is one of the best concept albums (well, as far as you can really call it that) of all time imho.
