I think Michael already sent him a message and he's said he's done it
before as well. What got to me a bit was that this actually made his bug
move faster which is like promoting these ridiculous antics that he
apparently is known to have. Because it was a minor bug to begin with, I
was tempted to let it sit there for awhile and make it clear that it was
because he was being an a.....but, that ultimately hurts our project and
probably doesn't do much to help any of us including him. Best thing I
could have done was ignore it and move on but it was late and it pissed me
off so I commented and spammed everyone about it ;)

I do think that most forums and community sites have general rules listed
somewhere that a user can be directed to, this is probably a good thing to
have just so that if in the future we ban a user, we can direct him/her to
the rules and point out which ones were violated.

Best Regards,
