I agree for now.  I'm hoping he polices his actions better and becomes a 
productive member of this user group like everyone else has been for years.  
I don't remember a problem like this ever.  (I don't mean to offend you 
Howard, just stating how I see it).

Yes, but then the replies to his messages will still get through :(

POSSIBLE SOLUTION:  Do not reply to a single message he sends (if it is 
flame-bait).  I know its hard to do.  But a couple have mentioned it.  That 
should calm him down if he gets no reaction.
