Or a troll gets banned & comes back with a new name to make a big splash by PMs. It's the trolls who keep us hopping until we get a fix on their 'fingerprints' & can spot them more easily. That's why it helps if you all pitch in . . . one of our members used to have an eagle eye for a specific troll & after only a few posts she'd let us know 'you-know-who' is back. And 'you-know-who' came back ten times!
How sad one's life must be to sit at a computer with nothing better to do than irritate strangers. Really pathetic people I would imagine.
