I'm pretty new to this /myself/, but it seems to me the best you can do
(apart from an abuse report if you consider it justified) is to consign them
to the Hell of everlasting Damnation that is your *bin* - If enough people
do that, as they surely will, if the poster you refer to is that bad,
they'll eventually get fed up & bugger off...
Myself, I worry more about the sociopaths in the /real/ world...
