Well apparently responding to hiryu and pointing out his blatant hypocrisy can warrant a ban for derailing a thread and "personal attacks" against him (I mean, ffs look at the recent threads in the art forum, nothing but him spamming his so called "critiques" that contribute to nothing.)
Escalus, the way to deal with all life problems that include another individual is through positive reinforcement and negative punishment. If he posts something of value you should give it credit like any other user, if he posts garbage than ignore it. Positive punishment i.e. harping on him, doesn't solve anything, and in actuality insults the OP even more-so than it does to Hiryu.
In one thread I actually requested a mod to delete the posts between and Johnny and Hiryu because it didn't focus on the topic at hand, which in that specific case was a wizard design for an Ipad platformer.
The one thing I wanted him to learn was civility on NG, manners are easy to learn.
I mean I've been around a while, and from what I've seen on the BBS is that you can only merge into a few specific forums. For me I've leaned towards the Art/Animation/Video Game/Politics/General(of course). I don't post much, but I know the users that do post. I can understand the tone and level of common understanding of rules and regulations.
Hiryu lacks understanding of what is acceptable to post and treats this place like DA where shallow posts are common place. I'm not making NG out to be the epitome of professionalism, but I think Tom/Wade intended this site to be pedigree higher than DA.
Now if you will excuse me, I have a scientific research paper on Chronic Mercury Poisoning to fix up.
