Can I ask those who use the {{Oh Dear}} template on IP pages to start limiting that as much as possible? As far as I can see, it's not much different than welcoming IPs (which we don't) and doesn't really help anyone. First, it's shared IPs - so you might get innocent bystanders getting that less then friendly message. The vandals don't give a rat's ass anyway, so we end up wasting server space for no reason. Let me know if there's any good reason to keep doing that. ~Jewriken.GIF 11:08, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

I tend only to use it if I haven't seen an admin about and I'm not sure they're gonna get blocked any time soon. Sometimes it does seem to have had the desired effect (or they were bored by the time I added it and had wandered off, it's hard to tell). But yeah, if there are any visible admins, I'll try to leave off it. --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 11:13, Nov 25
It's fine enough to leave it to someone when there is no member of the cabal around, but leaving that as a standard to any IP that blanks something, I think it's just a waste of time really. ~Jewriken.GIF 11:47, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

A specific message containing the particular details of what happened would be better than using {{Oh Dear}}. If a different person then uses that IP there is then a lot less likelihood that they will think the message was for them. {{Oh Dear}} on IP talk pages is never a good idea in my view... Just leave em a message. ;) MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 20:44, Nov 25
Yes, something nice and helpful like "FUCK YOU YOU FILTHY IP, WHEN I PUT MY HANDS ON YOU YOU'LL BE CURSING THE DAY YO MAMA MADE YOUR DADA LOVE LONG TIME. ~Jewriken.GIF 21:33, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Do not feed the trolls, especially those that don't bother to take the time to sign up before vandalizing. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:12, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh sure, you say "don't feed the troll," but when you see it laying there under the table, looking up at you with its soulful, puppy-dog eyes and holding its poor, starving hands out for just a few measly dinner scraps... What would you do? - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 00:43, Nov 26
Well, when I feed the troll I feed it other trolls. Sure, eventually strengthening one enemy at the expense of the others will, theoretically, come back and bite me in the ass, but that's only theoretical. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:03, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Or, we can all get admin powerz and ban the IPs. :P - Rougethebat.gifAdmiral Enzo Aquarius-Dial the Gate SonicLivesPicture.png 19:53, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
