Major right wing hater is starting threads on the site today

What the hell do we do?

I've alerted, but he's still here.

Well, not much we can do until the mods get your notice. If you think he's a major problem, maybe the best bet is to just put an embargo on his posts, don't reply to anything he writes, and hope he gets tired of talking to the wall.

Personally, though, I think it's better to throw a few barbs his way, just to make the board's general viewpoint clear, pending mod action.

I thought he was this afternoons entertainment prior to watching a tennis match.

That makes sense, actually.

Sorry that was a tennis joke. The US Open is on and I am only here during commercials.

152nd in the world at the start of the season. She just won the US Open, first Canadian woman ever.

Good for her.

Hey...that's a tactic...we can post the "running scores" from the U.S. Open in the guy's threads.

1. Ignore him.

2. Engage him.

Thankfully, he has been erased.  The way he posted at us would be the way a fascist might show up on the site and start badgering us if his group were on the verge of seizing power.  He was just short of the part where they announce the site is shut down and post an image of Trump and Bernier pointing guns at the camera in its place.

That pretty much sums up my feeling about his posts.

Thanks, Meg!

It was one of the weekend editors who erased his presence. We'll have to be vigilant now that right-wing hate groups are using progressive language to gain access then spreading their garbage on here. A while back I asked that when people applied to join rabble that the form field for why they wanted to join had to be mandatory. I needed more information to go by to keep the spammers out. Of course people can lie on forms, and a lot of the crap is obvious, but this is somewhat new and much worse than the Free Dominion trolls we used to deal with years ago. It'll require an extra layer of vigilance.

Indeed.  And simply ignoring these slimelords won't stop them.

If he'd been ignored, he'd likely have started twenty threads, not just the five that he did.
