you make a good point MG

Thanks its a complicated issue and is a tough path. I will not respond to him again (as I stated last night to him) but him and other like him will result on my avoidance of the main page (as well as many others), if he and others continue to be allowed on the site, more clones of him will appear, and soon BN will be a very negative site. I become a regular of BZ because the comments were so much better than I found elsewhere. If I was visiting sites right now I'd go right past BN and MG would never be here (I know, I know).

I avoid the main page a lot because, as we all know, BetterNews has zeroed in on me many times. I'm a lucky girl, I know! I don't engage him at all anymore but it has negatively impacted my experience on Bleacher Nation. I think Brett should ban him and not mention him again.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet, so far.

He did call me KGB, such a tool. I'm finished and I encourage everyone else to ignore him completely.

Well jokes on him because its the FSB now. But yes ignore him. If you argue with the trolls than they win. The whole point of trolling is to make people mad.


But if it pushes them toward getting banned I'll happily take that fight

Whats the point as Betternews no longer logs on he will just log on w/another alias.

Well after the first ban he was gone for 6 months, Brett bans the IP, email, and user name. So he'll have to find another IP address before returning.

I don't want to know or care what has happened, but yesterday and today the site has been so much better.

I'm going to follow the same course I've followed before. Until then, hopefully we can avoid taking the tempest out of the teapot. That part is within our control.

the Underworld is officially ice.

He's trying VERY hard. But, ultimately, he can't resist his nature.

So after the racial slurs, insults, personal attacks, flame baiting, adamant insistence on ridiculous falsehoods, and other forms of general trolling, he's back for the third? fourth? time.

I admit, I'm sort of curious to see how it will blow up this time. He's one of the most consistent, stubborn, and prolific trolls I've seen in roughly a decade of writing on the internet. I'm not sure he can come up with yet another original way to get banned, but I've been wrong with this guy before.

FTFY.

You must not be familiar with the Wereo.

He has his warning. I don't intend on having much patience, but, as I've said (so freaking many) times before, there's only so much I can do. This level of persistence is unnerving and tiring. At least at this point, one thing is certain: I'm not willing to tolerate him taking things over at night anymore. If he does the 200 inane comments in a four hour period thing again, he's gone. Maybe that makes me too totalitarian, and I wouldn't necessarily do that to anyone else, but he's earned my lack of trust.
