    I will hunt him down and beat his fucking goldbricking ass into plasmic jelly for you.
    No need. The keyboard is mightier than the sword (or in your case, the Louisville Slugger).

    Just don't mention the deadly lettuce.

    Never underestimate the amount of contempt a failed musician has for those of us who are still trying.

    He was David Aurora (not Ekko) when he stopped posting. As I recall, his last posts here were in the form of a verbal altercation with yours truly, after I had politely asked him to ease up on the abusive language towards some artist he didn't like - at which point he simply directed his vitriol towards me instead, over a slew of posts that left me rather puzzled as I had had no previous beef with him whatsoever.

    [EDIT: I checked out his posting history and he actually returned for a time in 2013.]

    Either I forgot about that or, if it was short-lived, missed it. But he has a history of abrasive language on the web. He seems to have moved on to Facebook where he doesn't have to bear the burden of attempting to be civil

    It was pretty short-lived. I linked it above.

    But he has a history of abrasive language on the web.
    It wasn't his language so much as his pointless ad hominem attacks in that particular instance. I was puzzled because we always had a great dialog up until that point. Maybe life was happening to him at the time. Dunno.

    I always had a good rapport with him. I thought his manners was more a reminiscence of shit brigadism.

    Shit Brigaders ate newbs for breakfast. We weren't into cannibalism. And as I said, I had a perfectly good rapport with him, too, up until that point. Which puzzled me.

    Try not to look like too much like food.

    You may lose a limb or two, but you'll live.

    Probably.

    Find a convenient Pommie backpacker you can use to fend off the beasties.

    Welcome to your new home!

    You mean as a distraction, not a combatant? Keep 'em busy as you exit stage left?
