Can we ban Alex Libman from the forums?

This guy is a moron...

But he's so insightful, Amy.  How are you not in love?  I think he is my dream man.

What is your definition of a "troll" anyway?  What about me resembles a creature from Nordic mythology?  I am sincere in my beliefs, non-violent, and logical.  I've been experimenting with veganism over the past couple of years.  I may be a political / philosophical iconoclast here, but if you don't want to have a discussion about political topics then why start those threads?  Do you really believe that all vegans who don't share your political views should be banned from this forum?  What does that say about veganism to the outside world?

LOL There's no victory involved...that's just using your fancy vocabulary to intimidate everyone. Don't think it'll work  :-D

There's nothing "fancy" about my vocabulary.  English is not my first language, and my use of it is far from perfect, but I do try to be precise and articulate.

I'm not trying to "intimidate" anyone, just address the issues at hand on appropriate threads.  I did not bring politics into this forum, I merely brought a different point of view into the already-existing conversations.

Out of curiousity I googled the name. And I found libman.us/proj.html
That particular Alex Libman states one of his current projects as "Endless daily libertarian forum "trolling" - does that count as a project?"
Sounds like whoever that is, they have nothing to do and all day to do it in. From what I've read of what came up on Google searches, this is what it does. And no one loves it. I guess that's what it's going for. Negative attention is better than no attention. I had a brother like that. Shoot, maybe it's him.

Didn't your grammar teacher teach you about quotation marks?  First of all, you're supposed to replace double quotes with single quotes when adding your own double quotes around a piece of text.  Second of all, the quotes around the word "trolling" were obviously sarcastic, in reference to the word that ignorant people use to insult whoever tells them an inconvenient truth they cannot logically refute.

"This guy is a moron..."  Seriously?  You don't like him so you think he should be banned?  ??? Is he threatening someone?  Spamming?  Is it so hard for you to see a dissenting viewpoint? There are folks here that I don't particularly like, and a few I can't stand, so I rarely read their posts.  Simple.  I don't publicly insult them; that is just egregiously (my fancy word of the day) callous.  I'd be disappointed if I expected more from this place.

I don't think he should be banned, it's entertaining....

Maybe, if you're easily amused... :-D
If one has serious reservations about a given poster, one should report them to Admin and let them take action, that's what the link is there for. Then Admin can take the action they see fit.

I don't think banning is necessary either, I mean it's an open site! I think the posts are a bit much, even though it is a "food fight" thread, which is obviously for being able to say whatever you think and argue and discuss, etc. But wow, he sure does have a lot of time to respond to every single thread's post! I have to admit, I think it's kinda funny too...

Pedant: a person who is excessively concerned with formalism and precision, or who makes a show of his or her learning.

I post on many forums, but this is the first time I've been called a pedant.

I'll try not to use that anecdote to draw any conclusions about vegan intelligence...

I thought we were just defining words, dear Alex.  I was trying to play, too.

If you read some of the things he posted at first he was talking about dissecting and torturing cats or something... i could care less if people disagree with my views but this guy is just being obnoxious

and yes he is a moron... sorry i didn't know the 2 of you had so much in common  :)>>>

eta: and i would appreciate it if you would ask me why i feel this way instead of drawing your own conclusions which quite frankly are way out in left field... thanks <3

eh, once or twice a year i find the new annoying poster annoying enough to be all OMG CAN WE BAN THEM?, but eventually they go away. or in this case, go and come back. after all the google results for that username, i wonder if it's really even one person.

and yeah, like other people said, just avoid if you don't like someone, especially if discussion does not feel productive.
