Not contributing anything worthwhile to the debates.

He might be incomprehensible and presenting information you don't agree with, but he has never been abusive nor even mildly insulting (unless I have missed something).

Shorter posts would be a lot easier to understand, but that applies to many posters.

I'm surprised at your lynch mob approach e. Is it that Ralph has a view that doesn't coincide with yours?

It would help if people addressed their posts to a specific person if they contain words like "you" or "your".

My instinct is to never engage in the banning of dissent. Even if I think the dissent is stupid or, even, mischievous. I realize that there is a line in the sand for everything, even a lack of willingness to ban. but, I don't think the idiot Ralph has reached that yet.

One option could be, as I think UE has suggested, to limit the threads where he could post. I don't actually know about the logistics about that on here and whether it would be possible. Even then, though, I would be extremely reluctant.

Help who, how and why? It was a collective "you" except where indicated otherwise.

Everybody? It would be helpful if you (UE) were specific about who "everybody" is, when I spect that you mean you can't understand .

I doubt most people find them difficult to understand. Unlike some of the verbose posts that some around here indulge in.

I cannot see how Ralph's posts can be described as "dissent".

Yawn. Have you got anything positive to say about anyone or anything?

Go on. Try it.

I and no doubt others could say the same to you. Don't play your (UE) little baiting exercises. They don't always go the way you (UE) might like. I suggest you (UE) stop commenting on posts you (UE) don't like. It will save you (UE) a lot of yawning. As for your (UE) question, you (UE) can answer it for yourself (UE), and just read through my posts. If you (UE) can't be bothered, you (UE) will never know the answer. Now stop acting the troll, and grow up.

Hmmm. And they'd not be justified. You can have a go at me for being abusive, sure, but never having anything positive to say about anything or anyone? Nope, that's your speciality, not mine. Smile

Alas, there appears to be an internal squabble even while considering the fate of another or perhaps (again) the one and very same RGR corporate sockpuppet who can't even get Xmas day off from trolling...

Here, here! Or is it hear, hear?

RGR was limited to which threads he could post on and then started deleting his posts before he was banned completely.

Did lynch mobs start off "I suggest we hang so-and-so"? Maybe there were some polite KKKs. Laughing

Several are convinced that Ralph=RGR, who was banned and is now back, very marginally less disruptive. If this troll has mellowed, banning again may further curb its recidivism.
