This kid - clearly this is the case from the tone and stylistics of his "writing" - is creating nothing but inflammatory, useless posts. It's one thing to have a difference of opinion, but his posts are nothing but statements and put-downs, followed up with name-calling. Now the people on his threads do their fair share of that, too, but given the tone of his eruptions, it's hard to blame them for taking the lash to him. I've noticed repeatedly that the Rules of Conduct are ignored, and that this seems to be tolerated in the interest of pumping thread count/views, perhaps? When I read the Rules, name-calling was certainly not a part of conduct on ET.
