The tone and wording of his posts seem very familiar to me. There's a guy who shows up on the MGExperience forums every so often. Everything he ever says, under various names, has always been the same kind of crap as Mr Green. I know he also posts on other car sites. I would not be surprised if this is the same guy.

Can we, should we erase all his crazy statements?
I would vote to do it.

Put him in Off Topic; it was somewhat amusing. Like the character in "Dilbert" who is always one-upping everyone with incredibly stupid statements.

i kind of miss him now. People say you get used to a migraine eventually, right?

Putting the 'wrong' wheels back on the '52 tonight so i can take it for a drive (a very slow, boring drive) tomorrow. Garden hose is back in the dirt.

I say leave it all up. With the whole "He who shall not be named" fiasco it's best to leave it up. I understand why the threads involving HWSNBN were taken down, but the legend grew about how he was "attacked" for asking simple questions when in reality he was being an arrogant a-hole and doing it in the wrong venue. But no one can go back and read it to judge it based on what REALLY happened. Let's not do the same with this guy or anyone else, leave it for all to read. After doing so I don't see how anyone could come away not thinking that fellow has major issues and needs help, but that's not our problem. We are here to discuss the cars, not provide therapy for someone's emotional issues.

Can we start a new section and charge an extra $20 a year for it? We can call it the "Safe space".

He wasn’t as vulgar as the Dodge Dynasty guy, but way more annoying. I hope he gets the help he needs. J
