I've only seen this with Janice; they annoyed each other long in the past and have a habit of getting on each others' nerves, and being on a text-only forum doesn't help. But this doesn't happen often, and it's pretty easy to ignore, unless you're directly involved.

Is it easy to ignore? A number of people have been responding to these posts requesting that they stop... so I actually disagree. Either I'm vastly over-estimating the problem or you are vastly ignoring it.
 
 Filtering his messages out is not the response because he pushes good 
 contributors away.

But works quite well with Ty Tower. And that's why you're mentioning Kris rather than Ty.

This is possible, but not the only reason. I'm surprised that you are confident that this poster has been using filtering.
 
 I don't think this is a significant problem. If you do, well, that's 
 your problem, not Walter's.

Actually, it is a problem because filtering will not work if others respond and quote the messages of the individual. I suppose that calls for another layer of filtering? :) -JJR

I was putting no symmetry (or asymmetry) between the two persons nor weighing out who was wronged the other more. That was not my object at all (and really wouldn't achieve much either). Unfortunately, that must not have been clear in my post? I was bringing up what I considered a more serious situation in this newsgroup in general. The particular instance you mention plays a small part in the whole drama... that's all. Either way, I think we've determined how this group prefers to handle this (that is: do nothing, filter and skip). Those that don't find this difficult to ignore can leave. For you, I, and others, that might be good advice. It certainly seems to have worked for Andrei. ;) If you do in fact use filtering, then I wonder why this was brought up at all? I guess the filtering didn't work? -JJR

I do use filtering but I read some of Janice answers.I got curious the same way
I get curious about watching a car accident,as I said.The advice to leave
worked for Andrei but not for us.I do not see how it is a joke.
