I think that his/her/its contributions and talk page speak for themselves... including Sex in United States which he/she/it KEPT adding. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 02:56, Apr 2, 2004 (UTC)

Sex in the US article can be seen at User:141/Sex in United States. See also: User:141/Virtual girlfriend.

I think 141 needs a reminder of the old rule write what you know—that, or he desperately needs a (real life) girlfriend. :-P Seriously, 141 isn't doing any more harm than the kid who throws a tantrum whenever anyone tells him to take his hands out of his trousers; he's a nuisance, to be sure, but not really damaging or anything. -- 09:31, 2 Apr 2004 (UTC)

This user has a history of trolling. I don't believe his edits are made in good faith, but is that reason enough to ban someone? Angela. 17:54, Apr 2, 2004 (UTC)

"Americans like to experience anal sex and BDSM" if that's not intentionally provocative, and clearly trolling/vandalism, I don't know what is. We wouldn't even be questioning it if it was just an IP address. Since it's a logged-in user, we have a procedure to follow. I don't think that this vandal has created a log-in should be reason NOT to ban them when the entire body of work of the user is trolling/vandalism. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 18:11, Apr 2, 2004 (UTC)
But the bans and blocks policy only allows banning for "simple vandalism", which trolling generally isn't. Personally, I think a change of policy is in order because, until then, it would seem we have no way of getting rid of such characters. I can't understand why we tolerate trolls to the extent we do.

Well, it's not like 141 didn't engage in simple vandalism as well... it's trolling in addition to, not instead of. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 21:48, Apr 2, 2004 (UTC)
