If you cannot post HT related info helping someone then dont post. Picking on someones language, age ect is simply not wanted here. Any members doing so will be banned. Lets all get along and be helpful.
It always stems from the same few members.
I certainly agree with you 100 percent, but this begs the obvious question: Why does this thread even exist and why was it allowed to stay open?
What useful purpose, in the context of AVS, its rules, and its charter, can a thread like this possibly serve?
I was amazed that you came in here earlier and signed off on this thing. This sort of thread couldn't be more against what AVS is about and what you just cited here, rightfully.
Surely we all know that, ultimately, there's no way a thread like this can end well.

You're right, but Walt, your problem has been: You keep adding fuel to the fire by responding to these people. Do you really think a response like "go to hell" and "No one care about my posts or me. Woe is me/ boo-hoo, I'm going to delete all my posts to draw attention to myself" does any good to de-fuse the situation?
You're just giving certain people more satisfaction.
The stuff towards the end of those five threads I linked to, and especially the first two, has to be some of the worst melodrama I've seen on the Internet in some time.
You're right. 9/10 times, at least, you never started it, but you really should have been reporting stuff to Alan and ignoring people instead of responding and raising the bar on melodrama and angst. That's what the forum moderators are here for. You should never have let things get out of control like that.
You really should start liberally adding the obvious hecklers to your ignore list and move on in peace and harmony. That's what the ignore function is there for. ;)
