If somebody is on your block list the effects of their comments can still be seen (derailed threads, replies to them, etc.).

Also lay off the drugs as they are bad, mmmmkay!
I actually have a few thoughts on this;
1) Q is certainly an oddball. Keeps this place alive. If you can't deal with the contents of his posts, DON'T READ THEM. I, for one, welcome the controversy he brings.
2) He CAN'T be banned. There are some oddities with the law that makes this a very VERY bad idea. Specifically, regulating an internet forum like this has the legal effect of ASSUMING RESPONSIBILITY over the contents, which means that you need to crack down on EVERYTHING. If you leave it a free-for-all, then even if you're in charge of the forum, you aren't responsible for the contents.
I find the topic of this thread to be offensive, and I do suggest to the author that, whoever you are, you are a total douchbag.
my health status prohibits me to take drugs like "Beer/Alcohol" like Michael so i really fear drugs like alcohol,morphine,energy drings, coffe, chocolate and im allergic against cigarettes and marijuana so really i'm maybe the most drugfree person you've ever met.

Even my own posts which are sometimes very critical of this site or of what some users here say were never altered or censored in any form or manner. You have to credit Phoronix for really being democratic in this respect.
Of course, you can interpret it like that and you could also say that more posts on the forum are more income, etc. I think I also hinted at that at a certain point. But I'm probably the furthest away from a conspiracy theorist so I would have to go with the democratic variant, after all.
I also agree with NOT banning Q. He is annoying and hard to read (I didn't know he has a syndrome until now), but he often is right and has useful info. And can produce a logic sentence
Q, what is annoying in your posts is that you often write too much. You should reply shortly and with on-topic info. But what you do on a topic about something is write one useful sentence to the topic and then you add another 10 starting at bashing Bridgman due to his Vista laptop and ending with the size of AMD OSS dev team. It does not mean those 10 lines are not right. But when you post this same info into all threads and many of your posts, it gets annoying.
So please try not to repeat so much (and in the aggressive way it appears to be) then everybody may be happy.
Remember that it is very likely his syndrome is completely imaginary, or an outright lie. This is the internet, after all.

because its impossible to "Fried the brain" with GHB but you will still claim this lie in the future.
