Anyone coming here for the first time and seeing dozens of brassco rants is unlikely to join, much less stay. It simply has to be done. I came here after weeks and of course I know the drill. Newcomers will be overwhelmed with his epic rants and someone is just going to have to decide to put him in his own category. It's killing the diversity here.
Good point. Herding people that we disagree with into special areas will definitely make this place more welcoming.
In this case you are dealing with an individual who has created enough difficulty over along enough period of time with enough raving banter that it seems only appropriate to allow him to continue his observations without chocking the board completely. As far as I remember, he is the only one to indulge in this type of discourse. so it's not about herding as "bunch of people" but what to do about a specific instance. I think he should have a voice, and if people want to skip over to his area, let them. But hey, if OL wants to keep it this way, it's no problem for me. It just seems prudent on behalf of newcomers who see the threads congested with so many of his posts. I know there is a general tendency to let him post and then simply ignore him. So tell me, how well has that worked? It's a suggestion. Nothing more.
