Downvoted this post without reading it. That's a first for me. The title + your username were entirely sufficient to know the right course of action.

    If you didn't read it, why both vote and reply to it? Wouldn't it have been better, in your opinion, to just ignore the post entirely?

      No, ignoring this individual doesn't work. It's been tried for years, and it just makes it easier for him to clutter the site up with his nonsense. In the last thread on this topic, the consensus was that members who care about the site should downvote his natter and leave replies pointing out what's wrong with it. That's all we can do.

        The stated reason is, "title + your username." So, the reason it is bad is the title? Really?
