Send anyone who responds to his messages a warning that he is a troll, with a link to all his posts. If you must respond, create an account with a name such as, "nomo_is_a_troll" and reply with a simple "don't feed the trolls" post.

The facepalm images should be a pretty clear hint...

Then so be it. My give-a-crap-o-meter is reading pretty near zero at this point.

@ Penguin Skinner and JohnDeere360 --

Having left these forums once before ... I can tell you that the experience is cathartic. You stop caring about the trolls and what they say. It just isn't that important to you anymore.

I hope that you return one day and I hope that you will be in a serene state of mind when you do.

Until then, you will be missed.

Best regards and warm wishes to both of you,

This thread was started by Nomko, who gave it the title "Forum uproar" and after one sentence launched into the usual tedious flames and insults, not as a reply to anyone because this is post 1! but apparently simply out of habit, and all the while accusing everyone else of doing something wrong. And a mod steps in a defends that????

If people like Nomko can carry on with this bs repeatedly and almost continually then what will be left when everyone who doesn't want to spend time with idiots, or clearing up the mess made by their cretinous advice, has stopped checking in? Maybe just a small crew of twits giving rotten "advice" to unsuspecting newcomers?

People like Nomko drag this place down. Don't sanction someone for calling the asshole and asshole. Do something about the asshole.

Beans!

This thread has turned into just another flame war. Personal attacks all over as well. As such I am locking the thread.

Nokimo, if you continue to intentionally incite flame wars, your next ban will be a permanent one instead of just two weeks.

Enjoy the peace while it lasts here.
