If you want to make an analogy you shouldn't cherry pick part of the
situation and ignore how awful it would look in the complete picture.

First of all these kind of requests were made to you to. They are
requests from people who have killfiled Nikos but still are confronted
with him because of those who reply to him. So if I am an assaulter
then so are you in the context of this analogy.

And what kind of solution is the killfile in this analogy? Perhaps this:

] Chris: Fred is really behaving very annoyingly
] Nils: You should wear protective gear so you can ignore him but
        don't bother the rest of us about it.

Fine you give me an opportunity to point out the problems in your
thinking without giving yourself the opportunity to respond. I
can live with that.
