I have never before banned a user from any site I’ve moderated, but I have temporarily (for 30 days) blacklisted one user who has been dominating the combox with repetitive comments (and questions) that have been answered repeatedly by others. I asked the user to voluntarily take a break, but that request was ignored by the user, who then proceeded to post another repetitive comment.
I expect this decision will have both supporters and critics. I’m okay with that.
Because Disqus doesn’t support temporary blacklisting, it’s quite possible I might forget to lift the blacklisting action after 30 days. I will set a calendar reminder. When I have lifted the blacklisting, I will update this post rather than publishing a new, separate post.
