    That's correct, and he does in fact live in California, not Florida. I see him posting on artists' FB pages all the time...

    Also, I believe JIF was basically a well-meaning music lover with absolutely zero social skills. He was never hateful or violent IIRC.

    I would agree that "malicious" was never part of JIF's resume.

    JIF was definitely curt but I just ignored his schtick... not as bad as some others IIRC

    JIF, if I remember correctly, had some sort of disability that resulted in an extreme lack of social graces/intelligence. He would get upset when one of his threads would go off in a tangent and he'd try to moderate the thread, which usually resulted in a meltdown. And yeah, I think he was in CA. PeterG was similar in his need to mod his own threads, though not as extreme. He was obsessed with lists to an irritating degree.

    Don't recall the poster in question, but I am a member of another forum where there are a number of people with Aspergers / high-functioning autism. In general they are quite thoughtful and circusmspect posters who have worked hard to be able to interact that way despite their autism. Now I am sure there are other people out there posting who have autism and display the kind of behaviours that JIF did. But it's my strong suspicion that there are also quite a few rude assholes with no social graces on the internet who like to hide behind the pretence of autism when they get called on their bullshit.

    I think I remember JIF mentioning he lived in a Group Home under supervision.....he claimed he is unable to pick up on social cues.....which can be disastrous on a text only internet forum...

    Is this JIF person one of the aforementioned banned ones? Any other aliases?
    Man you guys take awfully seriously a bunch of pampered, spoiled twenty and thirty something year old jocks earning millions of dollars to play a game running up and down a field. Why do you care so much about these guys to the point of arguing with each other. Do you think they care an iota about you?

    He was banned, yes, and did have one other alias that only lasted for a few days when he tried to come back. From what I've seen, he's never come back since - he seems to stick to FB. He does have a legitimate disability, which as mentioned left him unable to follow social norms, but is otherwise harmless. The type of behaviour exhibited the other night would never have come from him.

    Good riddance.

    If PE has the evidence and doesn't report him to authorities, they are complicit in any acts of violence he takes.

    It's not always convenient to do the right thing. But, you'd rather err on the side of caution.

    Do the right thing and contact the authorities.

    While there may be reasons for not doing, they are not excuses.

    I provided Sean, Cozy, and Duncan with the offenders information if they want to pursue it.

    Agree with all of this. I found JIF as irritating as most, but given his disability, I tried to overlook some of his awkwardness. But he did make it difficult sometimes.

    Yes.

    Clicking the triangle with the exclamation point on a regular post just sends us the link to the post.

    I'm on another forum for a computer baseball game were a guy is constantly negative and nasty. When anyone calls him on it, he goes all "poor me, I'm sick and in pain and you make fun of me". Being sick or disabled does not give you the right to treat everyone else like dirt.
