Very gentlemanly of yours. I think the way to deal with people like Rue is
very simple: silence. What his ilk crave is attention, above anything else.
So if we simply shut up, no matter how tempting a flamefest with an idiot may
seem, he'll quickly move away. It will only take a couple of posts by him
that receive *zero* responses here for us never to hear from him again, I
And that approach doesn't require 'voting off' anyone, which I find a fairly
repulsive thing to do. Silence from people should come simply as a personal
decision not to feed needless threads, but not as a 'show of force' of a
group against an individual, no matter how annoying he may be.
