For over a year now, we have seen an individual post lengthy, vociferous questions multiple times per week from ever new accounts. The idiosyncratic, entitled tone and repetitive lines of inquiry of "Sybil" have led to multiple regular contributors independently discovering the pattern. Unfortunately, numerous attempts at providing feedback on the delivery of their inquiries have been met with little understanding and no improvement.
Some of Sybil's favorite topics include:
- Complaining that Bitcoin Core doesn't support Lightning Network
- Ranting that earning interest on bitcoin holdings requires giving up custody and KYC
- Moaning that opensource software isn't a white glove experience
- Railing that Bitcoin's exchange rate isn't increasing after good news
Note that the majority of Sybil's content is deleted, and the above samples are selected from the more palatable specimen. Usually, repeated subpar content would lead to a user's account being banned from asking more questions, but since Sybil creates a new account for each post, they evade Stack Exchange's standard mitigations.
Frankly, I find Sybil's activity tiresome and consider it a time-sink for regular contributors. I'm writing about it here to a) spread awareness, and b) invite discussion of how to approach the situation.
