Agreed, but some of this stuff is just unacceptable. There is a difference between simply being an ass and making personal attacks on people.

Yes it is the teacher but also knowing that he is very close to being banned. I see it as fighting to keep the main board, if we don't keep a voice there then these voices will become the norm.


I never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it, I have avoided posting on the main board lately because of people like him. That was a good point.

The key is to ignore those who dirty the place, calmly let them know their mess will not be tolerated, and then post the intelligent post that illustrate the types of responses we expect.

Don't get me wrong -- you know I'm no fan of that nitwit -- but I think there is a fine line between trolling a message board to get a rise out of people and provoking someone to react in a way that gets them banned.

It just seems more honest to let him fall on his own merits. It shouldn't take long.

Yep, he'll do it do himself sooner or later.

I'm not sure I believe him, but he said he turns 12 next month. Sigh.

He's a pretty smart 11 year old if that is the case.

Okay then why is he up all night posting? He usually starts in the evening and posts late and then early morning and is quiet all day. It doesn't add up.

And now he is claiming that he has worked for US Steel. Don't we have child labor laws in this country?

Are you guys really believing him? Hes probably 27 and works third shift at a battery store. Hes just bored, and uses his spare time to be annoying.

I'll give him this he has really been better since the last warning. He hasn't mentioned Garza in close to a week, my guess is he works security during third shift and is something like 19 yrs old and does live at home.
