You can easily put him on ignore. If enough people ignore a guy, he will either back off, or he'll escalate things to a point where he is banned.
And let that be the end of that.
Honestly, this. Sometimes I feel that tolerance is in short supply in today's society and that people need to become more comfortable with being annoyed by others.

I hate to put on my old-man hat, mainly because I'm not really that old, just much older than your average poster in SWD. In my wizened state, however, it would appear to me that a fair number of poster in that forum lack the discipline ignore the contributions of posters they find to be obnoxious. Just use the ignore function and have the discipline to not click on the spoilered posts. I'll admit that it's tempting at first, but you actually get used to it very quickly. And if it turns out that laschenko isn't an ass and other people who haven't ignored him start to show some sort of encouragement towards his activity, I'll go back and unblock him. It's happened before and I'm sure it'll happen again.
