The answer is to ask your community not to feed the troll when it gets grumpy and just ignore him

When his presence is worse than his absence, you can deny him, but it is better to ask everyone in the community to simply shun him.

Perhaps our netiquette FAQ should include telling readers how to configure a kill-file for various mail readers. If you don't want to read someone, kill-file them. That will lead to the obvious comment that you might see some of their droppings in a reply, but that permits us to comment both on proper quoting and on not feeding trolls.

Yes, he is an annoying troll, but on balance he hasn't done anything truly disruptive or offensive that I could find.

We may disagree as his clueful:clueless ratio, but we can agree that he is just snarky. But on a related note, what thickness of skin should be required of participants on our lists?
