Anonymous PMs were received today.

Well PMs from an anonymous user, he still signed them Janko Gorenc.

He asks you for numbers indiscriminately of whether you're being serious or just joking. The slightest hint of maybe having the kernel of a conlang, and Janko will ask you for your numbers from 1 to 10.

Also, if you post a language called "North X", expect to be queried about "South X" as well.

As someone who got PMs from Janko, there's absolutely zero need for any bans.

The Jankoing will continue until morale improves!

...slightly more seriously it completely slipped my mind that the PM system was publicly accessible. I'll fix that.

Just remind him that numbers were probably a post-Paleolithic invention and that not all language have numbers.

I've actually had plans for a Janko Page for a few months which would attempt to fish numerals out of the dictionaries for every language on the site and present them all together. BUT THEN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA GOT INVOLVED. ...so it'll probably require some extra tagging, at least to resolve ambiguity.

I didn't realize he spammed everyone so indiscriminately.

Thankfully I already gave him my numbers for my three main conlangs back on ZBB... I hope he doesn't press for undeveloped parent langs and others I haven't touched yet.

He probably will. It may be like seven months from now or something, but he will eventually notice, and he will eventually ask for your numbers.

I should note that I have not been contacted by Janko since that first time shortly after I arrived at the ZBB.

I wouldn't call it indiscriminate spamming…when he notices a language, he checks his database, if he doesn't have it, he asks. I haven't known him to repeatedly pester someone (unless you include messages months apart as pestering, which I don't).

I have. I've had four PMs from him over four days with increasingly frantic subject lines asking for numbers in a throwaway sketchlang. When I finally replied and told him to sod off, he replied apologising and then asking for the numbers in a completely different conlang.
