I have been on the verge myself. I know of whom you speak and although
he and I actually hit it off earlier, his posts have begun to annoy even
me. I haven't filtered him yet, but If he doesn't start posting
correctly, I will. He has a lot to say but he needs to start saying
something new. I think everybody knows how he feels by now and if they
are like me, they are starting not to care. He is not hgelping his cause
at all. On the contrary (IMO) he is doing just the opposite.
