An email I sent two days ago. Will the JC do something to rid these blogs of Jose the blacklisted dictator goldfish, or does it want to destroy itself? It's a shame to let a website that won three national awards between 2000-2004 become a zoo. But that's what is happening.

Dear Ms Abraham and Mr Julius

The blogger who goes by the name of Happy Goldfish is a cyber-reincarnation of a person who has already been twice barred here - under the names of Jose, Blacklisted Dictator and Anthony Posner, as well as perhaps others.

His modus operandi is repeatedly to leapfrog his own below the line responses over other commenters in order to disrupt lines of discussion. He does this in order to destroy blogs that have banned him.

Why does allow this to continue? Is it the intention to see this excellent creation be turned into a laughing stock? After all, even the Guardian's Comment is Free is moderated and wouldn't stand for it.

Kind regards

Joe Millis
