And that's just it, annoying and only annoying.
It is quite evident that his ONLY purposes are to antagonize and taunt people.
All his posts have virtually the same content, except stated differently. What is the difference between that and posting 240 pictures of an unconscious Marc Savard? Posters who have done the latter in the past have been banned.
From BDC's posting policy.
Be nice. No threats, abuse, or spam.
Taunting and antagonizing is not abusive?
Be truthful. Don't pretend to be somebody else.
Saying the NHL is rigged is truthful?
Be respectful. No hate speech.
Saying that TT is a member of the KKK is not hate speach?
Debate, but don't attack. Stay away from personal attacks
He doesn't debate.
True, he is expert at brinksmanship and goes right to the limit on each of these items. However, if you look at it in aggregate, it's evident that he is contrary to BDC policy.
There are 2 flavors of trolls. One type posts stupid and annoying posts and people argue with them or give up arguing with them and ignore them.
The other flavor of troll does not engage other posters and their only purpose is to disrupt the forum. They are bad for the forum and bad for BDC business because they drive readers away.
