This example clearly demonstrates that ATLAS are moving swiftly because with the exception of RALPP, it was ATLAS who were asking sites if they were observing problems. It was also easy to identify the user in question who has been contacted.
If individual jobs are causing problems by all means kill them but not all this users jobs are problematic and he did not intend to cause problems so I don't see how banning anybody would help here.
