Great idea! But how did that work out in the last page or two? His latest "facts" were "supergeese flying at breakneck speeds" Have you considered taking this up with him? It requires cooperation from both sides. No lurkers want to read trolling. But I agree with you in principle. I have given up appealing to MR's rationality directly, he has become a two-dimensional caricature of a Believer. It also means I'm done making fun of him - that was all out of frustration and is beneath me. Though insults are hopefully a thing of my past, criticism is still a necessary part of the rebuttal process. MR can still serve as a foil to show readers how faulty logic is identified and addressed. Let's be perfectly clear about this, once and for all. No one can silence Magical Realist except Magical Realist. No one can timeout Magical Realist except Magical Realist. No one can ban Magical Realist except Magical Realist. To-wit: No one is removing his posts. They are here for all eternity. No one is pressing the timeout/ban button. Timeouts and bannings are automated, based on infraction frequency and level. MR knows how many infraction points he has at any given time - as well as when they expire - (it's all listed in one's Profile) and metes out his trolling appropriately to stay just shy of action. There is a deliberate pattern to it. (And he doesn't always get it right.) The only way to have MR not get himself banned is to let him tell his bald-faced lies (see countless historical examples) and not issue any infractions at all. Unfortunately, this will - and has - emboldened him to simply escalate his trolling game, driving the intelligence quotient down and driving more people away.
