I enjoy discussing politics, even with people with whom I disagree. That's why I hang out here. But the member known as DRM, always a nuisance in this forum, has today behaved in a way that makes me consider him to be a pestilence worthy of eradication.
He's always behaved badly here. He rarely participates in any discussions, with the exception of starting threads. His conduct when starting threads is consistent. He writes enormous topic titles of 40-60 words, and then an opening post of 2 or 3 words. His words are always pointless nonsense, devoid of substance. It is my belief that he does not contribute to this forum in order to interact intellectually with others, but, rather, to stop others from communicating by creating turmoil.
I've never openly complained about his conduct before, except for attempting to shame him occasionally in his threads. I'm a champion of free speech and he normally only posts 5 or 10 threads in any given day. But today he's ruined everyone's experience in this forum by posting 40 or 50 posts, all with his usual decorum of starting threads by flinging insulting, sterotypical, straw-man-like insults and then running away.
I asked him explicitly to stop spamming the forum and then waited until he'd started 10 more threads before starting this one. I hate the thought of trying to silence any voice, but I believe DRM's behavior is condemned by almost all users here, regardless of ideological persuasion. His ideas are as unwelcome as those of the Westboro Baptist Church when they're protesting a soldier's funeral with signs condemning homosexuality.
I would appreciate other opinions on this matter before taking any further action. Am I overreacting? Thanks for any attention you wish to give to this matter.
