Why doesn't everyone agree that no matter what he says we should ignore his
posts - it may be difficult but I can assure you that if ignored long enough he
will go away. Replies to him are like food, he will gulp them down and love
every minute. Starve him - he will soon waste away. Its all a matter of minds
games for him. Take aways his toys and he will die.
