We should split the thread and move it to the Science forum 'cause it is a genuine medical curiosity.

RE: Wicked Clown
I wish there was a site that collected information on forum trolls and made them public. Like you can look up sites that commit fraud and stay clear of them, or ones where you can look up who in your neighborhood is a child abuser so you can keep your kids away, and things of that nature.

It could have a function where you can type in a post or more and it goes and matches it to posts made repeatedly by known trolls. There could be categories, like for drive by trolls who make one post to start a discussion and never come back, or for benign trolls who just post a bunch of nonsense, for stalking trolls who pick their targets from forums, for malignant trolls who aim to cause a rift in the forum with the result of having a lot of people leave.

These people go from forum to forum and cause the same type disruption in each.

Some forums may tolerate some of the types of trolls, nobody should tolerate harmful people like stalkers and malignant trolls.

If we had all this info available, decisions would be easier because we would know something about the character of the troll. I this case, we know more than plenty. He has a long online history.

Now, free speech is a most important thing. All members should be able to speak freely.

The real problem arises when something becomes a "free speech versus protection of the membership" issue.

That is what this issue is. It's not about his lying or abrasive posts or flip flopping or contradicting himself or who does or doesn't like him, this is about whether he poses a danger to forum members and to what extent the forum should protect it's members.

There is one. I have a link here somewhere. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Well we gotta keep the circlejerk going no sense in actually fixing a problem til the last possible second. Obviously all the long time and valued forum members who have a major problem are just being silly, even though everyone who has had direct contact with this guy is in agreement. Nope we must by all means delay delay delay.
