I'm just gonna ignore him and just talk to the others on there. Hopefully that will make him go away...though I wouldn't be surprised if he still stayed....
That is pretty much what I just posted in the shout box. He obviously has some serious issues and just wants attention. If we don't give him that attention he hopefully will go away.
Maybe you could try banning his IP address. It worked with a guy I had trouble with on a forum I used to run.It usually stops them even accessing the site. Honestly though.. its a sad sad reflection on society that it encourages a 16 year old to speak like that.
I banned his IP and Email. The only thing I didn't ban was his username, Billy. Only because someone else may wish to use it and it is also a common name, and the name of an RE character so it is very possible someone else may want to use it.
The problem with IP bans, is they change a lot. Most providers have a whole group of them that they use, and they can switch many times while you are online. Mine has switched as I've been surfing the net.
I agree with it being sad that many feel this type of behavior is acceptable. It isn't. I blame the parents. Now sure, some parents try and their kids just act up. But many times when you see this type of behavior the parents just aren't involved in their children's lives. They let them run wild as it is easier than actually trying to raise them properly.
This is an especially sore topic with me as I have 3 children and there is now way on God's green earth that I'd ever allow such behavior. Sure someone could say that the parents just don't know what their kids are doing online. When I hear this I have to ask why not? I happen to know all the sites my kids visit, their usernames and passwords. I monitor their time online, and occasionally check to see what they are up to. I allow only 1 pc in the house, which is kept in the living room, where I am usually at and I can see what is going on.
It is time that parents take control back and actually raise their children to be productive members of society instead of a bunch of thugs. I really dread what my children will have to face when they have children if this doesn't happen.
The scary thing is these type of kids are going to be in control of the world soon. And for me this is a scary thought. Now that I've ranted long enough I shall stop.
