For everyone's sake, can we muzzle him?

I would prefer a big red rubber ball gag with studded leather straps.

Unless better proof becomes available that Floyd is a truly dedicated troll, and therefore well deserves DB's name for him of Lord Trollington, I now believe that Floyd suffers from a mild mental illness of some kind. Although I have no expertise in mental health, it seems to me that his posts on the message board are based upon delusions of some sort. Because of this, I think responses to his posts on the message boards validate his delusions or otherwise exacerbate this outlet for his mental problems. Would it not be in his best interest then to ban him from the boards for a few months, with the message to go and get well? It could be a considered an act of kindness to do so.

One possibility is that he is bipolar. When he is on the "up" part of the illness, he feverishly posts large amounts of text in favor of ideas that he thinks are awesome but others quickly disregard as nonsense. When he is on the "down" part of his illness, he talks about quitting the game, leaving, and so forth. A recent goodbye post comes to mind.

On a deeper level, I think Floyd has some awareness of the impact of his condition. When he is faced with overwhelmingly negative responses to his posts, he chooses to accuse players and admin of elitism or belonging to an exclusive group, and thereby blame the negative responses not on the merit of his ideas, but upon the prejudices of others.

It's clear I'd never make a good immortal. I would've deleted him long ago after all the undeserved rude comments he's made towards a staff putting in so much time and doing a fantastic job.

It sounds like this guy is an antagonist to many players... why do they keep giving in to Floyd's games?

I suggest an option to ignore users (hide the post unless clicked on?)

That way we could easily not have to see posts by certain people.

How nice it is to know that some people just don't go away. -_-
