I'm ok with being insulted, if it is warranted. I have done enough on this forum to be insulted and rightly so. Plus, I'm not the owner or moderator. It is all fair. I'm a big boy. The issue is that he appeared to have come here to stir up trouble. It is fine to not like Linda Lee. She is fair game. The issue was that he was just attacking her to toy with us. The goal was to pit the Bukowski defenders against each others and cause discord. Then he started insulting people and asking to be banned, while claiming that he was being oppressed (see: the dissident).
Read all of his posts. I saw one that was not a troll posting. All of the other ones were done to get a reaction.
We are very welcoming to many new members here (even though Poptop thinks that we are cruel to all new members), but when someone comes here and tried to shit on our necks, they are dealt with. These trolls are not hard to pick out as they all use the same tactics. Not really an original bone in their bodies...
p.s. He called BoSP and Chance Press "Rags", which is meant as an insult, but it is funny. Like what we put out or not (again, what we publish is not for everyone), but calling our presses "rags" (which means gossipy, cheap newspapers) is like calling us "plaid" or "off-orange". It just makes no sense. Maybe that was the thing that he thought would hurt me the most, but I thought that it was funny. Maybe I'll use it on my website.
