So the reason Jimbo keeps posting utter drivel is because everyone keeps telling him he is posting utter drivel?

Okay - is the answer then :

a) Not tell him he is posting utter drivel (and he will stop posting utter drivel) ,
b) Tell him the utter drivel he is posting is, in fact, the word of a visionary genius (and he will stop posting utter drivel) or
c) He will continue to post utter drivel no matter what we say because, in fact, he has absolutely no intention of changing his mind ( or, indeed, even considering changing his mind) because he doesn't want to know ( nor care) what anyone else on the planet thinks, if it isn't what he thinks?

Which of those scenarios is the most likely, in your opinion?

I'd also like to understand what the board loses by banning him? As far as i can tell, nothing at all. While plenty to gain.

Agreed. Having never voted to ban any here before I finally snapped last Friday and voted to have him gone.

Yeah he does this periodically - he lays low, hoping everything will blow over and he can return. Triumphant, in his mind.

There was a time when even the mention of a ban would send the board into a complete meltdown, with extravagant flounces and passionate defence of freedom of speech. Bcb has come a long way since then, and not in a good way. The way to deal with Jim is the same way one deals with all pesky gets. Ignore him and he will go away, Do not open his threads and certainly do not respond.He will soon tire.

he has tirelessly trolled for eons. be happy if you missed any of it.

i honestly don't recall anymore... how did you take it when skope got banned? when yellowjacket got ( i think) a temporary ban? i could be wrong, but weren't you one of the people who way back when thought googa was a stain on the board and driving people away? well, folk have explicitly posted that they will not post here anymore cuz of jimbo's toxic presence, people who have been on this board longer than i have. i consider it a small blessing not to have his constant trolling trumpy crap this close to such an important election.

I had just belatedly put him on ignore so wasn't sure if it was that or that he's actually been gone - but the board looks so much more friendly and interesting already.

Nice while it lasted.

Can we please make it permanent?

I would have been one of the first to abuse the banners. But I've changed my mind.

I have him on ignore but other people keep responding to him and a lot of potentially interesting discussions get sidetracked. Every fucking time. I ignore him but he doesn't go away.

Ban the twat. It may even do him some good. If he doesn't have his usual outlet to vent, he may have to stop and think about things.

I doubt it though...
Bugger off.
