He apparently loves the attention and isn't reluctant to make some of the inflammatory statements he has posted recently and in the past.  Banning him from the bb [impossible to do anyway]or "filtering" his posts is unnecessary [you don't want to do that either because sometimes his comments are worthwhile].

In a way to help you and the others...

Someone who's watching the last BB post and reactions just send me a note where 

he's making reference to the actual mood down the border. The situation is so 
trouble that many are loosing their natural social guides. He strongly feel 
that many irrational comments are a strong indicator that some are in the early 

stages of depression.

You may be depressed if you're experiencing:

    * A major drop in your mood that lasts most of the day and is consistently 
low for two weeks or more.
    * A loss of interest in things you normally love to do.
    * Irritability at home or at work. (I added on the internet)
    * Grudges against people you perceive have wronged you.
    * A desire to avoid other people. (I added fltering their messages)
    * Overwhelming feelings of sadness or grief.
    * Unreasonable feelings of guilt.

How is depression treated?

Those who realize they are suffering from depression benefit from professional 
counseling and - possibly - medication. There is a wide range of anti-
depressants on the market that have been approved in the treatment of 

Medication does not normally "cure" depression. But it can help people get 
through their daily routines.

As usual the first steps is to admit that we have a problem, but what will 
happen with those who does not want to listen prefering to discard some post on 

the BB?
