We occasionally we get a newcomer with zero post history who comes in guns blazing with an aggro tone. You know the type: long post, usually misinformed, with assorted negative assessments. Extra points for all lowercase or missing punctuation.
To be clear, the objectionable aspect of this is not whether or not someone likes what we do. It’s whether they’re respectful and looking for a discussion, versus just here to rant because they need an outlet.
The system will usually flag these posts for being new, but we still have to respond in some way. What’s the best practice in forum land for this type of thing, delete? Delete and block the user? Or just delete their posts until they write one that’s constructive?
