I came to look around and found this thread and knowing that many members have expressed dissatisfaction with Tony1's posts and attitudes I took the time to read through the entire thread before making any comment. I know that I am not known for posting in this forum. However, here we have the majority expressing the need for action in responding to a disruptive member. This is not unique to this forum. You may choose to ignore Tony1's posts or respond to them. This has always been your option. Unless Tony1 does something to get hisself banned from the board, (and I do not see that happening, as Tony1 has a history but it is never truely out of the limits of of the boards rules) then you will each in your own way have to come up with a way to deal with Tony1. Tony1 may be disrtuptive but he is a member of this community none the less. He supplies you with many a thought and responce. I do not personally agree with Tony1's behaviour and I understand the flustration that some feel when having to deal with Tony1's posts. If you feel this strongly about Tony1 then I would suggest that you take it up with Porfiry as to the disruption factor. Tony1 has his rights too. Whether you agree with them or not. So you must make your choice as to what you will do. A week or a month will not change anything other than delay your decision on what to do, that too, is a decision. I understand that most here are reluctant to take that step. It is evident from the consideration that has been given and expressed in thought here within this thread. I have no personal aminosity towards Tony1 nor can I say that I have any towards the other members of this community. There are those I choose not to respond to for one reason or another but that is my choice and not something I try to pass on to other members of the community. There are those on both sides of the issue here. It is your choice as to what you will respond to this post with but those are your choices as I see them. That folks are my 2¢.
