Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

Could it be that Romeo Fabulini and his sock puppet Dropship have somehow been blocked from a2k participation?

I don't agree with Romeo on anything I can think of; but I will say his contributions are colorful and sometimes even amusing. His 'two fisted rhetoric' is really no more than pillow fighting compared to some of the vituperation that is regular a2k fare.

Now, for my confession. The last time he left, I sent him my email address. Yesterday he emailed me and said he was unable to log into his Dropship account. I don't get it. Is he just too obtuse to remember his password?

The only reason I ask is if Romeo's complaint is legitimate, how does that play out for other unpopular a2kers going forward?

Any one else know of similar situations?

You did know that "wherefore" doesn't mean "where", didn't you?

@Tes yeux noirs,
Thanks.
"Where art thou, Romeo" doesn't have the same ring to it.

[edit] On consideration, wherefore seems to apply equally well in Romeo's case

"Wherfore art thou Romeo?" means "Why are you Romeo?", as I am sure you know.

@Tes yeux noirs,
I must confess to having long incorrectly assumed . .
"For what purpose are you Romeo?" pretty well sums up Romeo's first visit here.

I think "Who are you Romeo?" would have fit as well
But I was trying for effect?

@neologist,
I can only say that with my long membership on Abuzz and A2k if there was an issue (other than stupidity of forgetting password or some virus protection software issue), if he's having problems with his account he may have earned himself a time-out. I'm not saying that he did or that he might've even deserved a time-out as I don't follow him. Any problems like that should be addressed to a Moderator...instead of campaigning for him in a post.

@Ragman,
Thanks for the advice.
I'm not familiar with any of this.
And, I have no idea how this may have come about.

Hence the post.

@timur,
I would never suggest he was a cool guy.
More like a well intentioned dweeb.

But a pillow fighter, right?

The sort of well intentioned dweeb who likes to dress up as the Waffen SS.

I think your title was clever, Neo. I liked it. The intricacies of the "wherefore" have been discussed to death elsewhere.

Anyway....Question:

What the hell is this need to wait 2 minutes between posts all about? Suddenly the forum has to determine if I am a bot?

When did this start?

This is Neo's handler, in case you didn't know.
2 minutes to prevent accidental double post?

@Joe Sixpack,
Nope.

Starting this afternoon...when I post several comments in different threads, a box comes up telling me I must wait (120 seconds) between posts.

Never saw it before today...and I've seen it a half dozen times today.

(When I hit the "Reply" on this post, I was told I had to wait another 28 seconds.)

@Frank Apisa,
That's a swell idea. In the early morning hours, I have seen a particular variety of spam posts come in at the rate of three every minute. If this is a new control, that should limit these few people to 1/6 of their post rate.

@neologist,
I had a2k'ing trouble yesterday and it turned out to be my own damned fault (again, already, she says to self). I tend to get hysteric when I think my computer has gone haywire.

@Frank Apisa,
Yep.
Joe was wrong. It's a new wrinkle.

BTW, I am not Joe's sock puppet. I don't care what he says.

I'm not!

No it doesn't. It means why are you called Romeo? Which is odd because it's not the first name,Romeo, which is the problem. It's his last name.
