Seeing as you use OE6, just add anyone you don't like to your blocked senders list. Menu | Message > Block Sender...
And then don't post replies to any crappy messages.

Very funny guys, yes I know that, but is that not a bit manual?? What when he changes his name? Not exactly thought out for long-term use eh !!!!
I have seen people talking about blocking all cross posted articles, how is this done (different clients if so which ones ?), are there any news client proxies available?

The best approach is starvation, the 'Phil the jerk' type idiot want (need) people to reply, if you ignore their crap and just quietly kill file them they will soon move to pastures new. Even if they have their ISP account cancelled it's all to easy to obtain another, and there are plenty of ISP's who don't care what their members (customers) post as long as the money keeps coming in....
It's all to easy for idiots to be 'wanta-be-trolls' these days, and not very good ones at that. :~(

He does keep changing his name. I've given up kill filing on name or message title. I just group messages by sender and delete the b******s mindless drivel in one fell swope. Very satisfying.
