Attention James R, Bells and Other relevant moderators: This is posted in the interest of the site's reputation and that of its staff. I have tried your way, again and again; but, as you can see for yourselves, it doesn't and never has worked in the paddoboy case; meanwhile others have been banned for less! What does it take? How many more excuses are you going to make in order to avoid getting paddoboy to obey the rules like the rest of the members have to? Please do something to encourage paddoboy to desist from his ongoing: 1) repeated insistent demands for personal info (against the rules); 2) dragging irrelevant and off-topic claims and assertions into a thread's science point discussion (against the rules); 3) gratuitously dragging in other members names into exchanges which they are not a party to (against the rules); 4) personal inciting and trolling remarks making unwarranted insinuations and specious associations and mischaracterized prejudicial attributions and unfairly painting others with intent to personally prejudice and or pit other members against each other (against the rules); 5) filling every thread with his fixations and links which he obviously, more often than not, has not read or understood properly; which state he maintains by either being totally oblivious to, or just ignores, obvious evidence that contradicts his assertions and misunderstandings, when it is presented to him patiently and politely as per the rules. The most infuriating thing is paddoboy's habit and tactic of adamantly asserting things which have no bearing on the point under discussion by the other party in the exchange (against the rules) and if challenged simply fills up the thread with a blizzard of redundant material which is either irrelevant and bedside the point or just plain misunderstood by him. Must every otherwise interesting thread and discussion be plastered with paddoboy's unrelenting distractions, incitements and just plain rude and unfair personal crap? Again, I have tried it your way and nothing works. Can you please do something other than respond to reports of his posts with excuse after excuse and ineffective advice? Thank you for (I hope) listening and acting properly as per the rules this time. If appeals via Reports and PMs to the moderators has not rectified the 'paddoboy problem', then this is the only option left. Please either apply the rules fairly in paddoboy's case as well as others' cases. Or if you won't, then please just stop pretending that "going through proper channels" is of any use when it comes to the paddoboy problem. Thanks anyway, either way. Best.
