Say hello to our new MIR Team!

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

The job of the Malicious Intruder Removal Team is to ban people who join DU with the intent to disrupt. MIR Team members are volunteers, and they serve for a three-month term. During each term, we try to have half new members and half returning members.

If you are a member of the MIR Team, you should have access to the access-restricted Malicious Intruder Removal Forum. It should appear as a red folder on your Forums & Groups page, and in the left column of any page (if you view DU in "Standard" mode).

Thank you to everyone who volunteered!

1. Wow, GREAT idea!

Glad you guys volunteer, and I am sorry that you have to be so busy.

I have noticed an increase in the level of non-fish-based trolling.

Thanks in advance.

...a certain former mod who had a likin' for Library Girl.



Of course, cbayer would always her before I could get there.

6. Thanks to those that served, and good luck the the new team.

The MIRT was an interesting experience. Lots of spammers and trolls to smash. It was a challenge at first, but our communication and tools got better over time. Hopefully it will continue to improve!

Good luck to all.

17. Welcome new MIRTers. Please stop by the forum and read the information posts before

taking on banning anyone. There are a couple threads that have a lot of good information as well as just saying hello.
