This Indian guy is obviously trolling the Powerswitch website.

He most certainly isn't. He posts in one thread only, which he started 9 years ago. Anybody is free to ignore it.

The views expressed are getting a bit boring and repetitive, but are acceptable if substantialy confined to one thread, rather than spread all around.

I see little merit in locking or deleting the thread since the OP could easily start another similar thread.
And whilst of course I COULD ban them, that seems an overreaction.

Fair enough E and Adam. I just thought he/she was just a 'bot.

No bot could keep that up for 9 years without it being very obviously a bot.

The thread referred to above is IMO getting a bit sillier.
Considering moving it to "off topic"

To be fair to Sushil, two points:

His essential position is not that different from the raisin-d'etre of this site. His fault lies in his ranting, repetitive posting style. However this leads me to the fact that he limits himself to posting on just the one thread. That fact alone means he may be forgiven for his posting style, in my opinion. So I do not think he should be penalized.

If anyone does not like his posting style on the one single thread in which he posts. the solution for them is simple and obvious.
