I vote for option four. really good post, sorry it got moved. It's very hard to respond to whutzizname without crossing into some disputed border zone with uncivilistan, as his narcissistic attitude, and rigid zealotry are, IMHO, uncivil in themselves.
Perhaps at some point in the future, the admins will take into account the accuracy of the statements in question. I think it must be a very difficult position to be in and while I would not profess to be any wiser, were it my site, posters like him, and me, and a few others would have been cast out into cyberspace a long time ago.
